Biological Sciences Seminar Series

HSU Campus
The Department of Biological Sciences and the Biology Graduate Student Association are pleased to have Dr. Darren Ward, HSU, Fisheries Biology Dept, present, "The plastic portfolio effect: can the plastic expression of diverse life histories stabilize salmon populations in small watersheds?"

In large watersheds, individual sub-basins often support salmon populations with distinct life histories adapted to local conditions. This life history diversity across populations reduces temporal fluctuations in salmon abundance at the scale of the whole watershed through a “portfolio effect” where annual conditions that are detrimental to some populations and life histories are innocuous or beneficial to other populations and life histories.

In this seminar Dr. Ward will explore the potential for fisheries managers to induce a similar portfolio effect within a single population in a small watershed by managing habitats to promote the plastic expression of diverse life histories.
5:00 pm-Mar 29th 3:45 pm

The History Department’s 2014 Undergraduate History Conference will take place Friday, March 28, and Saturday, March 29.

He has been a guest professor at Princeton, Harvard, the University of Chicago, Emory, Dartmouth, UCLA, and the Australian National University in Canberra.

Lehmann is a foremost expert and the author and editor of more than a dozen books on various aspects of Protestant Christianity.

He is also the author of Martin Luther in the American Imagination, and most recently, The Memory of Luther, 1817-2017 (Luthergedächtnis, 1817-2017).
