About the Lecture
Harbor Branch’s Polar Research Program uses molecular genetic techniques and satellite-linked telemetry in the study of northern temperate, Arctic, and Antarctic marine mammals. Join Dr. O’Corry-Crowe as he describes the range of modern field and lab techniques used by his program to investigate the effects of climate change and ecosystem regime shifts on marine mammals and other apex predators in the Arctic.
