will take questions on “Environmental Change: What Are the Links With Migration?”
Bremner, who spent several years studying migration and environment links in the Galapagos and Amazon regions in Latin America, will answer your questions about the relationships between migration and the environment, current trends, and future migrations related to environmental change. You may submit questions in advance or during the discussion at http://discuss.prb.org
From August 18-29, a cyberseminar sponsored by PERN

PERN Cyberseminars are conducted using a standard email discussion list; instructions are online.
