VIMS After Hours Lecture - Romance Under the Waves

On February 22nd, Dr. Jeff Shields of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, will keep the spirit of Valentine's Day going with a presentation on the variety of ways marine animals reproduce. The passing on of genes is an all-consuming task in the animal world, and marine animals have fascinating ways to ensure their genetic legacy. How do stationary organisms like the barnacle mate? How do crabs find each other in the vast and dark deep sea? Find out the answers to these questions and more during this engaging and humorous talk. Free and open to the public. Geared towards an adult audience.
