Whether you're raising cattle outside of Bozeman, growing coffee in India, or maintaining your lawn in Hamilton, you're producing and managing wildlife.

Researcher Paul Robbins says that's neither good nor bad - it's just a fact. Robbins is director of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconson-Madison.

He's in Missoula tonight to present a lecture titled:"Producing Wildlife in Montana, India and Beyond: Conservation in the Anthropocene."

Robbins explains to Edward O'Brien that the term "Anthropocene" refers to our current geologic era.
