Winter Ocean Acidification lecture Series on Thursdays – open to all

The 2011 Bevan Series examines the effects of carbon dioxide buildup from human activity, which dissolves into the oceans, making them more acidic. This process of ocean acidification — the “evil twin of global warming” — may harm corals, shellfish, and other organisms at the base of marine food webs. How will this process alter marine fisheries and aquaculture now and into the future?

The Bevan Series examines the biological and social ramifications of our past, present, and future use of marine resources. Highly acclaimed speakers from academic, agency, and non-governmental backgrounds tackle sustainability from disciplines as diverse as ecology, fisheries management, conservation biology, law, economics, and anthropology.

We invite you to join us for 10 informative lectures and take your place at the leading edge of marine conservation. All lectures are free and open to the public.
