Go With the Flow: Restoration and Resilience in Stream Systems and the Human Gut*

Dr. Matt Orr, assistant professor at OSU-Cascades, will discuss how disturbance in Central Oregon stream systems has led to habitat degradation—and how disturbance of the human gut from antibiotics and an industrial diet leads to chronic diseases such as obesity, autoimmunity and cancer. He will present progress being made to better understand and repair each system.

*Please note that the December Natural History Pub will take place at the Museum.
