Potvin — a plant biologist at McGill University — is an award-winning expert on tropical forest ecology and conservation.
She’ll be talking about halting deforestation in the tropics — one of the strategies that’s hoped to mitigate the changes that industrialization is wreaking upon the Earth’s climate.

The bad news is that Windsor utterly smashed its winter snowfall record on Wednesday. The really bad news? This may not be the last blast of the year.
