Dr. Howard T. Odum founded the Howard T. Odum Center for Wetlands and the Center for Environmental Policy at UF and was widely regarded as a pioneer in ecosystems research and especially for his integration of the fields of ecology and economics. In an obituary written by his successor Mark Brown in 2002, Dr. Odum’s research models in these areas were described as "all boiling down to the idea that natural and human systems must be considered together for the benefit of both." Due to length, this episode has been split into two parts. Topics include emergy evaluations, water management, and environmental policy in Florida. Local journalist and author Cynthia Barnett interviewed Dr. Odum in 2001. Produced by Deborah Hendrix. Edited by Danielle Navarrete. Copyrighted music by Therapy Shock, courtesy of Public Room Records. Published as SPOHP's first podcast initiative project, POD.
