The afternoon keynote will feature Andrea Wulf, author, talking about her new book, The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt’s New World. Wulf reveals in her new book the extraordinary life of the visionary German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) and how he created the way we understand nature. Through his explorations and observations, Humboldt began to see the Earth as a living organism. As he layered information, such as observation, species, and elevation data, onto maps, he created the earliest global vegetation zone maps. Though almost forgotten today, his name lingers everywhere from the Humboldt Current to the Humboldt penguin.
