The Friday Seminar Series in Biology presents: “Tails of two invaders: A quest to determine the roles of two spiny predatory invertebrates in aquatic food webs” By Dr. Kimberly Schulz, Associate Professor of Environmental & Forest Biology at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry.
Synopsis of presentation: This presentation summarizes results of ongoing field, laboratory and modeling efforts that were conducted to determine the impacts of two predatory zooplankton, Bythotrephes longimanus (spiny water flea) and Cercopagis pengoi (fish hook flea), on foodwebs of the Laurentian Great Lakes and the inland lakes of New York State. Although the two invaders are closely related, results suggest they have very different, and sometimes unexpected, effects on invaded lakes.
This seminar is hosted by the Biology Department and will take place 4 pm Friday March 7th in Science I room 313.
About this seminar series: This series is offered weekly to provide our student community with opportunities to learn about scientific research. Speakers may include our own department faculty or students, as well as biologists from elsewhere. All are welcome.
