Smithsonian Marine Science Series Kicks Off With Dr. Paul Feb. 21
Smithsonian Marine Station Director Dr. Valerie Paul will kick off the Smithsonian Maine Science Lecture Series with “Chemical Signals in the Sea” on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m.at the Pelican Yacht Club, 1120 Seaway Drive.
Dr. Paul 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
The Smithsonian Marine Station has been conducting research in St. Lucie County for more than 45 years with a lab on South Hutchinson Island and the St. Lucie County Aquarium – a marine science outreach and education center operated in partnership with St. Lucie County.
The Smithsonian also hosts a Marine Science in the Morning Lecture Series on selected Wednesdays at 9 a.m. through the spring. For details about upcoming lectures visit: https://naturalhistory.si.edu/research/smithsonian-marine-station.
