Seminar: “Coming to grips with ocean acidification”, Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, Vancouver, 21 September 2016

Date & time: 21 September 2016, 4:00-5:00 pm
Location: University Centre, Seminar Rm 307, 6331 Crescent Road, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z2
Presenter: Christopher Harley

Ocean acidification has been called global warming’s evil twin. Like warming, acidification is caused by human greenhouse gas emissions and has the potential to reshuffle the ecological deck in the ocean. Unlike warming, however, near-future changes in pH will exceed anything in the recent geological record, and there are few if any places to hide. The seminar discuss the many ways in which ocean acidification affects marine species, including shellfish that we eat and kelps and invertebrates that define key marine habitats. The presenter will emphasize the importance of moving beyond studies of single species studies, and present examples of how ocean acidification may change coastal ecosystems in British Columbia and beyond.

Reception to follow. Registration not required.
