The Global Change Institute is proud to announce a special one-off seminar by

Professor Stephen Palumbi

Jane and Marshall Steel Jr. Professor in Marine Sciences, Director of the Hopkins Marine Station and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, Stanford

Professor Stephen Palumbi's research group is engaged in study of the genetics, evolution, population biology and systematics of marine species from corals to sharks to whales.

A major focus of Steve’s research is on the conservation and management of marine populations, the identification of seafood products available in commercial markets, and strategies for finding and protecting the world’s strongest Pacific corals. Recently elected to the National Academy of Sciences, Steve is the Director of the Hopkins Marine Station, a member of the Management Committee for the Center for Ocean Solutions, a Senior Science Advisor for the Communications Partners for Science and the Sea, and a board member for several conservation organizations.

His work has been used in design of the current network of marine protected areas in California, seafood labelling laws in Japan and the United States, and in numerous TV and film documentaries.

Steve’s latest book for non-scientists, The Extreme Life of the Sea, is about the amazing species in the sea, written with Steve’s son and novelist Anthony. Previous books were The Death and Life of Monterey Bay: A Story of Revival and The Evolution Explosion.

Please RSVP for this seminar here.
