The dark side of light

Maja Grubisic

As a biologist, Maja has been active in research on light pollution of the artificial light and the impact it has on plants, insects and other animals since 2013. In nature, light regimes have been stable for a very long time. The cycles of darkness and light are one of the most stabile environmental changes. With artificial light we change these cycles and influence the biological rhythms. At TEDx Maja will provide us with background information on why light pollution is such a big issue in biology, why this topic should concern all of us and what we can change to make it better.
