LECTURE: The Zooplankton of Puget Sound - Links to Climate and Fisheries

Sunday, November 10

3 pm

Julie Keister, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Biological Oceanography
University of Washington

The Fort Worden Chapel

Admission: $5

(students, teachers FREE)

Dr. Keister’s research focuses on a variety of problems in biological oceanography and zooplankton ecology, particularly those related to how climate-driven environmental change interacts with biological processes to control zooplankton biogeography, diversity, community structure, and abundance.

Interactions between the environment and zooplankton population structure, behavior (e.g., diel vertical migration), and growth ultimately control ecosystems including fish and other upper trophic level organisms.

Dr. Keister works on these interdisciplinary projects using a combination of field collections, laboratory experiments, satellite data and collaboration with modelers.
