Ecosystem Services Podcast Tutorials

To help overcome differences in terminology used by researchers in various fields, eight podcast "tutorials" focusing on various aspects of ecosystem services will be released prior to the conference.  This year, Joe Palca, NPR science correspondent, has interviewed selected experts on aspects of ecosystem services and turned them into “Science Friday” type podcasts. 

Conference attendees will be notified when a new tutorial is released through the weekly conference enewsletters.  Attendees are asked to listen to all podcast tutorials prior to the November conference.  
To listen to the Podcast without leaving this page, click the "play" button below.  To download the presentation to your desktop so that you can import to your audio library, or listen to from your desktop, right-click the "Download Presentation" link and "Save link as" (Firefox) or "Save target as" (Internet Explorer) to your desired location.  These interviews will also be burned onto CD-Rom and mailed to all attendees with the other materials one week prior to the conference.

Any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in these podcasts do not necessarily reflect the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine, the W.M. Keck Foundation, or any employee thereof.
