Water in the Anthropocene is a three-minute film charting the global impact of humans on the water cycle (posted on Vimeo) organized by the international Global Water System Project. Through its leadership and participation in the activities of the Project for over a decade, CUNY Environmental CrossRoads scientists have helped to develop many of the concepts put forward in this video.
CUNY Environmental CrossRoads scientist and Principal Investigator Kyle McDonald is part of a multidisciplinary, international team of researchers who have been awarded nearly $4 million to develop a broad interdisciplinary framework to explain and predict plant and animal species distribution in Brazil's endangered Atlantic Forest. Scientists from the City College of New York (CCNY), New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) and University of Sao Paulo (USP) comprise the team, co-led by CCNY's Ana Carnaval and USP's Cristina Miyaki (link to article).
The June 10th Global Edition of The New York Times featured an article by Professor Charles Vorosmarty and Claudia Pahl-Wostl on waterborne threats due to long-term human conflicts with water. The article was written in conjunction with the Bonn Declaration on Global Water Security, held in Bonn, Germany in May (link to article).
