LHL Lecture - The Panama Canal

"The Panama Canal Watershed: Science, Commerce, and Sustainability", September 2014; 1:03.  Guest speaker: Dr. Jefferson Hall, Staff Scientist, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama.

The Panama Canal depends on a supply of fresh water, but the state of the Canal watershed reflects a global competition for land, water, and all of the goods and services that provide for a growing population. The Smithsonian’s reforestation work in Panama to protect its valuable watershed is at the intersection of science, commerce, policy, and nature.
