‘Designer ecosystems’ may help to achieve sustainability by building the best attributes of natural ecosystems into engineered ones. Past agroecological systems that purposely employed natural complexity for human benefit – from ancient Hawaiian fish ponds to the Biosphere 2 project – highlight the promise and the pitfalls of designing complex systems. Avoiding the pitfalls will only be possible if we apply recent insights into the power of biodiversity and landscape heterogeneity to regulate ecosystems.

 Designer ecosystems’ may help to achieve sustainability by building the best attributes of natural ecosystems into engineered ones. Past agroecological systems that purposely employed natural complexity for human benefit – from ancient Hawaiian fish ponds to the Biosphere 2 project – highlight the promise and the pitfalls of designing complex systems. Avoiding the pitfalls will only be possible if we apply recent insights into the power of biodiversity and landscape heterogeneity to regulate ecosystems. Among other examples, I will discuss one such application from our lab – a biodiverse, indoor ecosystem that runs on kitchen waste to grow fish and plant crops.

Speaker: Sean Geobey

You are somewhere. As much as a university can feel like a bubble – your corner of it even more so – you are part of a bigger world. You are also in a place where the most cutting edge ideas in that world are being developed, though it often feels like those ideas rarely move outside Ring Road. However, that bigger world is a place that needs your ideas and needs different perspectives to help solve its most intractable problems.
