Dr. Shaw Lacy will be attending the XIV Congreso de la Sociedad Chilena de Limnoloía. The conference, titled “Sistemas acuáticos frende al cambio global,” is being hosted by the Instituto de Fomento Pesquero (IFOP) in the southern Chilean city of Puerto Montt from the 23rd to the 25th of October.
Dr. Lacy will give a presentation titled “¿Sabemos en dónde están los peces? Mapear los hábitats de peces fluviales chilenos a través del uso de factores de gran escala” and teaching a workshop course titled “Vinculando la ecología fluvial con la gestión territorial a través de la macroecología.” The presentations are based on his research results from a large-scale project from the Chilean Ministry of Energy (Estudio de Cuencas), looking at sustainable hydroelectricity, where he worked in collaboration with many faculty members from the Centro de Cambio Global, including Luca Mao and Sebastián Vicuña.
Portions of this research are currently being written up as individual research papers, for publication in early 2018.
