Kelp will be the topic for the next installment of the Fall Seminar Series at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology (OIMB), coming up on Friday, Nov. 8, 4 p.m. in OIMB’s Boathouse Auditorium.  The speaker is Christie Yorke, speaking on “Kelp as a trophic resource to reef food webs.”  The talk is free and open to all (but be aware that these OIMB talks are oriented toward scientists and students, not the general public, although members of the public are welcome to listen in).

Yorke is a PhD candidate in Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology in the University of California at Santa Barbara’s Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Marine Science.  She specializes in studying the role of kelp, and especially kelp detritus, in marine food webs.

To reach the OIMB Boathouse Auditorium, park near the campus (63466 Boat Basin Rd.) and walk down the road past the Coast Guard housing.
