Suds & Science—The surprising connections around us in the natural (and unnatural) world.

We all recognize that individual habitats, populations, and even people are “connected”, in that what affects one may have profound and often unexpected implications in others. Dr. Drew Talley has been studying these connections in habitats ranging from salt marshes to desert islands. He will present examples of these connections, focusing on 30 years of research in Bahía de los Ángeles, Mexico, and show how this journey to understand these ecosystems has led to insights about critical connections not just between seemingly disparate habitats, but between different fields of science, between countries, and even between academic, public, and education sectors.

About Suds & Science:

Sometimes, the most interesting discussions occur over a beer or a glass of your favorite vino. (Bonus points if you can remember what was said the next morning!) That’s the concept behind Suds & Science, a monthly event that brings scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. Each session kicks off with a short and enlightening presentation, after which the floor is open for discussion between the audience and the speaker. We cover a wide variety of topics that can range from the science of beer to superhero physics to the genius of genomes. We invite you to come sit back, sip your favorite beverage and participate in the discussion. Suds & Science puts the fun and spirit(s) back into learning.
