Evolution Matters Lecture

The Harvard Natural History Museum hosts "Ocean Evolution Today: The Impact of Human Activities on the Ecology and Evolution of Marine Organisms," a panel discussion with Samantha B. Joye, University of Georgia; Bruce H. Robison, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute; Randi Dawn Rotjan, Boston University Marine Program; and moderated by Peter R. Girguis, Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University; Adjunct Research Engineer, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.

Human activities are causing changes in the ocean that could influence the evolution of its organisms. In this panel discussion, three marine scientists with expertise in chemistry, microbiology, geology, marine conservation, and the use of remotely operated vehicles to study deep-sea organisms will discuss the impact of human activity on ocean and coastal ecosystems and answer questions about actions that individuals and organizations can take to support the health of the ocean.

Presented in collaboration with the Cambridge Science Festival.

The Evolution Matters Lecture Series is supported by a generous gift from Drs. Herman and Joan Suit.

Free parking is available at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
