This event has already passed
MIIS's Center for the Blue Economy presents the 2016 Ocean and Coastal Resource Management Speaker Series. On Tuesday, November 29, it will feature a talk by Larry Crowder, Navigating Our Way to Solutions for Marine Conservation. The lecture will be held 6pm-7:30pm in MIIS's McGowan Building, Room 102. All are welcome.
This lecture will discuss how scientists at the Center for Ocean Solutions, Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment arrive at solutions for various marine issues.
Dr. Larry Crowder is the science director at the Center for Ocean Solutions. He is also a professor of biology at Hopkins Marine Station and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, both part of Stanford University. Previously, he was the Stephen Toth Professor of Marine Biology at Duke University. Crowder’s research centers on predation and food web interactions, mechanisms underlying recruitment variation in fishes, population and food web modeling in conservation biology, and interdisciplinary approaches to marine conservation. He was principal investigator for a number of large interdisciplinary research projects including the South Atlantic Bight Recruitment Experiment (SABRE), OBIS SEAMAP (Spatial Ecological Analysis of Megavertebrate Animal Populations), and Project GLOBAL (Global Bycatch Assessment of Long-Lived Species). He has also directed and participated in a number of research, analysis, and synthesis groups at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) and for the National Research Council’s Ocean Studies Board. His recent research has focused on marine conservation, including research on bycatch, spatial ecological analysis, nutrients and low oxygen, sustainable seafood, ecosystem-based management, marine spatial planning, and governance.
