SPRING 2011

PUBLIC LECTURE SERIES

SCHOOL OF MARINE AND ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES

MARCH 4TH , 2011 7:30 p.m.

DUKE LECTURE HALL, Chancellors

Stony Brook @ Southampton

SPEAKER: Dr. JEFFREY LEVINTON

TOPIC: “RESTORING OYSTERS TO NEW YORK WATERS: DREAM OR REALITY”

Reception to follow lecture.

Jeff Levinton is a great speaker, one of the smartest people I’ve ever met, and has spent considerable time conducting research on the extremely impacted Hudson River.  His talk about the feasibility of oyster restoration is of particular interest now since the BioScience paper about oysters being functionally extinct, and because there are a bunch of people interested in using oysters to clean highly polluted waters.  Definitely, if you are around, check this talk out!
