Promoting Coral Survival in the Face of Climate Change
265 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107
This event is free an open to the public.
Coral reefs are spectacularly beautiful and diverse places that are currently threatened by climate change. Katie Barott will explore what researchers have learned about how corals sense and respond to these changes in the world around them as they work to develop corals that are better able to withstand climate change for use in reef restoration. The goal is to harness knowledge about fundamental coral biology to boost the survival of coral reef communities in a future ocean that will be warmer and more acidic.
Since 2005, the Penn Science Cafe has shined a spotlight on Penn research in the sciences. Lectures are free and open to the public. Each talk begins at 6 p.m. and is followed by an audience Q&A session. The two lecture series are presented by the School of Arts & Sciences in partnership with the Office of University.
