Oceans are warming, becoming more acidic, and are being depleted of oxygen. How aquatic life reacts to these changes can help people understand more about this issue.
Andrew Whitehead, associate professor UC Davis Department of Environmental Toxicology, is a comparative genome biologist and molecular ecotoxicologist. He will be discussing Developing Models for Climate Change Research Using Ocean Species on Dec. 8 at Sierra Nevada College.
The program will begin at 6pm, with refreshments and no-host bar from 5:30-6pm at 291 Country Club Drive in Incline Village.
A $5 suggested donation will be collected at the door. Registration is necessary.
