What DNA tells us about the ecology and diversity of kelp forests: working with Northern Chumash science partners

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

Steve Palumbi, Professor of Oceans and Professor of Biology, Hopkins Marine Station

Steve has always tried to turn advances in marine science into practical tools to solve problems…from climate change impact on corals to how to test the species of seafood. He’s also the author of books such as The Death and Life of Monterey Bay and The Extreme Life of the Sea. He will be speaking about his current work with the Northern Chumash Tribal Council near Morro Bay in their drive to create a new national marine sanctuary. They are working together using advances in DNA analysis to document the diversity of marine life in the kelp forest and how to put western science and Chumash approaches together.

Sponsored by the Friends of Hopkins.
