Tropical Deep Reefs: Exploring the Underexplored
October 28, 2014, 7:00 pm
Dr. Carole Baldwin, Research Zoologist, Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History.
The Smithsonian’s Deep Reef Observation Project is a multidisciplinary Smithsonian project exploring the diversity of tropical deep reefs off the coast of Curaçao in the southern Caribbean. Deep reefs are natural extensions of shallow water reefs, but, because they lie beyond SCUBA diving depths, deep reefs are underexplored ecosystems worldwide.
The lecture will be held in the Linda Hall Library Main Reading Room. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Lecture begins at 7:00 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public; however, e-tickets are required.
Parking is free in Library parking lots and along the west side of Holmes Street between 51st and 52nd streets. The main entrance to the Library grounds is on Cherry Street. The Linda Hall Library is not affiliated with UMKC. Parking in all UMKC lots is by permit or meter. Parking rules are enforced until 10 p.m. on weekdays.
