oin emmy-award winning host of the PBS series, Expeditions with Patrick McMillan as he takes us on an in-depth look at the biological and ecological phenomena that make our region one of the most resilient habitats on the planet. There is a reason why the diversity of plant and animals species here is so high. The diversity contains many species which have a challenge migrating long distances to accommodate changing climates. These species tell a story of eons of persistence in this geographically complex region. Complexity is a term that we, as humans, tend to dislike but complexity is the key to diversity whether we’re speaking of our home landscape or the region. Complexity breeds diversity, which also generates resiliency.
