Smithsonian Maine Science Lecture Series: “Chemical Signals in the Sea”

Dr. Valerie Paul, director of the Smithsonian Marine Station, will speak about years of discoveries regarding how organisms produce chemicals as defense or attraction mechanisms.  She will discuss research ranging from harmful algal blooms in the Indian River Lagoon to settlement cues for coral and fish larvae on Caribbean reefs and provide examples of how small molecules produced by diverse marine organisms mediate many ecological and behavioral interactions in the ocean.


This is a free lecture and a cash bar is available for refreshments. No advance registration required.
