Alan Shanks, a professor at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology (OIMB), will cap the Spring Seminar Series with the annual Public Lecture.  Speaking at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 7, in OIMB’s Boathouse Auditorium, Shanks will address “Dungeness crabs—their biology, ecology, and what causes cycles in their abundance.”  The public is invited to this free event to learn about his research.

Dr. Shanks is a professor of biology and biological oceanography, whose work tends to dwell on the place where the physical and biological realms intersect, such as his current studies of how the dispersal of larvae is affected by currents and surf.

To reach the OIMB Boathouse Auditorium, park on Boat Basin Rd. near the campus and walk down the road past the Coast Guard housing.
