Download the MP3 audio file for this podcast.
Southern Appalachian forests are a global biodiversity hotspot. But they’re also rich with coal. Duke University ecologist Emily Bernhardt led a recent study that documents the long-term, widespread effects of surface coal mining on the region’s waterways.
In this podcast, Bernhardt speaks with associate editor Cathy Clabby about Appalachian ecosystems, and how they’re changing.
Bernhardt spoke at Sigma Xi headquarters in November, 2011.
