Evenings at Whitney – Tracking Global Biodiversity by Harnessing the Wind
September 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
In this presentation Dr. Clare will describe the power of “environmental” or “eDNA”, a type of genetic material which seems to exist all around us all the time, an almost invisible source of information found in the water, soils and even the air we breathe. She will describe how it has been used as a tool for decades in the study of aquatic life but how we are quickly realizing that its most extraordinary power might actually be on land.
This free lecture will be presented in person at the UF Whitney Laboratory Lohman Auditorium, 9505 Ocean Shore Boulevard, in St. Augustine. Those interested also have the option of registering to watch via Zoom live the night of the lecture.
