Wednesday, July 6
at Stroud Water Research Center
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for tours and light refreshments.
Lecture begins at 6:30 p.m. and, following Q&A, concludes by 8:00 p.m.
Event is FREE and open to the public.

Aquatic biologist Stephen Golladay, Ph.D. from the J.W. Jones Ecological Research Center in Georgia will discuss how climate trends affect ecological processes and aquatic communities, the effects that people and their activities have on our freshwater systems, and the importance of aquatic invertebrates and freshwater mussels to the health of our streams.

The lower Flint River in Georgia, where most of Golladay’s work is based, is home to the highest diversity of fish in any Gulf Coast drainage east of the Mississippi and has many other rare species, such as the Halloween darter and five federally protected mussel species.

This area is also the epicenter of a 20+ year water dispute between Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. It is located centrally in the historic range of the longleaf pine forest, one of the most imperiled forests in North America.

Dan Janzen in Costa Rica

Stroud Science Seminar

Friday, September 9
at Stroud Water Research Center

Featuring Daniel Janzen, Ph.D.

Daniel H. Janzen and his wife and research partner, Winifred Hallwachs, have dedicated their lives to studying, restoring and protecting tropical forests. Their groundbreaking work pioneered a new era in ecological restoration, most notably in the creation of the Area de Conservacion Guanacaste in northwestern Costa Rica. At 410,000 acres, this reserve is one of the largest protected areas in Central America and contains four distinct ecosystems.

Janzen is DiMaura Professor of Conservation Biology, University of Pennsylvania, and Technical Advisor to Area de Conservación Guanacaste. He is a tropical ecologist and biodiversity conservationist with 59 years of field experience and 466 scientific papers and books, all focused on the interactions of tropical animals and plants, and for the past 25 years, on their permanent in-situ conservation as well.

He is a world-level authority on the taxonomy and biology of tropical caterpillars, and is a member of the US and the Costa Rican National Academy of Sciences.
