Time Event Title
3:15 pm-4:15 pmDynamic Ocean Management:A Novel Approach to Interactions between People &d Oceanic Pelagic Organism West Science
Dr. Larry Crowder is the Edward F. Ricketts Provostial Professor of Marine Ecology and Conservation at Hopkins Marine Station and Senior Fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, both part of Stanford University. Dr. Crowder investigates emerging issues in interdisciplinary science with a focus on marine conservation. Solving problems in the real world requires excellent science (including natural and social sciences) coupled with an understanding of the role of formal and informal governance in policymaking. Recently, the research conducted in his lab revolves around coupled social-ecological systems. His interest in bycatch reduction has led him in two directions—studying small-scale fisheries and dynamic ocean management.

Dr. Larry Crowder is the Edward F. Ricketts Provostial Professor of Marine Ecology and Conservation at Hopkins Marine Station and Senior Fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, both part of Stanford University. He is also Affiliated Faculty at Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions. Dr. Crowder's research centers on predation and food web interactions, mechanisms underlying recruitment variation in fishes, population and food web modeling in conservation biology, and interdisciplinary approaches to marine conservation. He has studied food web processes in both freshwater and marine ecosystems, and has used observational, experimental, and modeling approaches to understand these interactions in an effort to improve management. He was principal investigator for a number of large interdisciplinary research projects. His recent research has focused on marine conservation, including research on bycatch, spatial ecological analysis, nutrients and low oxygen, sustainable seafood, ecosystem-based management, marine spatial planning, and governance.
7:00 pm-8:00 pmPodClub Cole Library
This month, PodClub is listening to The Memory Palace. The Memory Palace is a storytelling podcast about the past. Hosted by Nate DiMeo, it was named the finalist for a Peabody Award in 2016.
