Discovering Biodiversity: Going Beyond the Limits of Our Eyes

Speaker: Dr. Theodora Pinou, Western Connecticut State University

This seminar is an introduction to sea turtle epibiont diversity, and an explanation of how this type of research supports case-based learning. Additionally, the talk demonstrates the importance of data sharing among scientists, and the need to look beyond vertebrates and macro-invertebrates for signals of climate-induced community change. Finally, it introduces co-evolutionary models to explain invertebrate plasticity and species discovery.
