ig_Peter_D_Ward-001 (26k image)"Sea level, carbon dioxide or hydrogen sulfide: choose your future poison" examines threats from global climate change. The lecture will begin 7 p.m.Jan 13th in The Commons on the UW Friday Harbor Labs Campus

San Juan Nature Institute is proud to announce that the 2011 Arthur Whiteley Lecture Series, held in collaboration with UW Friday Harbor Labs, with a lecture by Professor Peter D. Ward, member of the faculty in both the Biology Department and the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at University of Washington.

Peter Ward is an expert on mass extinctions and the role of extraterrestrial impacts on Earth and uses his insight into past events to predict future changes. In his recent book, The Flooded Earth, he described what our world will look like in 2050, 2100, and beyond and explains what politicians and policy makers should be doing to alleviate the consequences of the inevitable changes. He is currently involved in detailed field work in France concentrating on mass extinctions in bivalves and ammonites and, in contrast, researching speciation in living marine animals like Nautilus.

The series continues on January 27 when Emily Carrington will talk about mussels and their tenacious hold on their host.

Charley O'Kelly will discuss Biofuels on February 10 and on February 24, Gordon Orians explores the subtle decisions bird make when choosing where to live, what to eat and with whom to mate.
