I note that none of the other several COG members who were there, have commented back to the list. Although I missed the start, there were certainly interesting ideas presented but I don't think it would fit a general COG meeting - the material was far too complex for that.

CSIRO Seminar - Friday 13 May 2011
Topic: The global diversity of terrestrial vertebrates in a changing world
Presenter: Professor Walter Jetz, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Yale University
Time: 11:00 am
Venue: CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences Lecture Theatre, Clunies Ross Street, Black Mountain. 

Abstract: Walter Jetz' research addresses questions in global biodiversity science, macroecology, global change ecology and conservation. In this seminar he will first illustrate and discuss the global geographic patterns of diversity of the world's ca. 28,000 species of terrestrial vertebrates and the role of past and current environment in shaping them. Using birds as a study system, he will then present the results of first-ever global projections of the potential threats arising from future environmental change. Finally, he will outline a new cyber-infrastructure and citizen-science initiative aimed at advancing the global species distribution knowledge-base to facilitate more robust and general forecasts of future biodiversity change.
