Schindler Lecture in Aquatic Science

March 10, 2016

The annual Schindler Lecture in Aquatic Science will be hosted at Trent University in Wenjack Theatre, Otonabee College (east bank) on March 10 at 7:30 p.m. The speaker is Dr. John Pastor, a professor of Biology from the University of Minnesota Duluth.

About the 2016 Schindler Lecture:

The North Woods is one of the most ecologically, geologically, and aesthetically interesting places you will find. Here, geologically young glacial deposits from the most recent Ice Ages lie atop the ancient Canadian Shield, which contains some of the oldest rocks on earth. The North Woods is the band of forest centered on the Great Lakes region and the St. Lawrence River where the range of sugar maple and other northern hardwoods to the south overlaps with that of balsam fir and boreal conifers to the north. This is the land of Christmas trees, moose, and maple syrup. In this talk, I will explore the nature and natural history of the North Woods. You will learn about how the North Woods became assembled, how its resident organisms interact with each other, and its future in light of expected global warming and human change.
