Dr. Telmo Pievani is a full professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Padua, located in northeast Italy.
Telmo is a widely acclaimed expert in biodiversity, with an extensive track record of research and publishing on the topic. He also is a frequent guest at international conferences, including speaking at a number of TED Talks.
The topic of today’s episode is biodiversity – the building block of every creature, every plant, and every substance on this planet. It is the foundation of all existence. While we have touched on the concept of biodiversity in previous episodes of Voices of Nature – such as with Michele Sofisti and Jean Claude Biver – the conversation with Telmo will be an in-depth examination of biodiversity.
