This symposium includes seminars by Dr. Warwick Vincent (Université Laval) on cyanobacteria and the Pole to Pole Paradox; Dr. Hilary McManus (Le Moyne College) on women in STEM, Antarctica and how diversity in leadership can inform climate change policy; and our very own Maggie Amsler (PSA Membership Director, University of Alabama) on her experiences in 27 trips to the Antarctic.
Student-Organized Symposium: What goes on, on the inside? Connecting algal physiology, their distribution and climate change
This symposium will include presentations on algal physiology and their response to increased temperatures and ocean acidification in temperate and tropical systems, as well as using freshwater diatoms to assess long term changes to aquatic communities.
Speakers: Dr. Catriona Hurd (University of Tasmania), Dr. Maggie Johnson (Smithsonian Institution), Dr. Evelyn Gaiser (Florida International University)
Applied Symposium: From micro to macro: nuisance algae and their management.
This symposium will include presentations on micro- and macro- harmful and nuisance algae from freshwater to marine environments. The lectures will cover algal biology and ecology, bloom dynamics, toxin production and fate, and algal management.
Plenary Speaker: Dr. Clarissa Anderson (Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego)
Speakers: Dr. Ligia Collado-Vides (Florida International University), Dr. West Bishop (SePRO Corporation), Dr. Barry Rosen (US Geological Survey), Dr. Patrick Kangas (University of Maryland)
