Science on Tap!

Blondie's Food & Drink
"Crown Ecology in Tall Sitka Spruce Trees"

by Dr. Lucy Kerhoulas
HSU Department of Forestry & Wildland Resources

I will discuss some of the physiological complications associated with being a tall tree and some of the surprising ways that using crown water sources high above the forest floor can minimize these complications. I will also describe some of the epiphytic communities that occupy these old-growth canopies. Furthermore, although epiphytes and their host trees epitomize commensalism, the historical view of this relationship has ranged from semi-parasitic to mutualistic. It is well documented that canopy epiphytes can increase nutrient availability to host trees and the ecosystem as a whole, but there is relatively little known about how these interspecific interactions influence host tree physiology. I will discuss some of our recent findings on the potential influences of epiphytes and crown water sources on host tree water status and physiology in tall (> 85 m) Sitka spruce trees at the Redwood Experimental Forest, Del Norte County.

Free and all ages welcome!
Delicious food and drink available for purchase!

Sister Spit at HSU

Kate Buchanan Room
Co-hosted by Peer health Educators,Clubs and Activities, Associated Students, Student Engagement and Leadership, and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion!

In 2017 Sister Spit celebrates its 20th anniversary. Sister Spit began in San Francisco in the 1990s as a weekly, girls-only open mic that was an alternative to the misogyny-soaked poetry open mics popular around the city (and the nation) at that time. Inspired by two-bit punk bands who managed to go on the road without hardly knowing how to play their instruments, Sister Spit became the first all-girl poetry roadshow at the end of the 90s, and toured regularly with such folks as Eileen Myles, Marci Blackman, Beth Lisick and Nomy Lamm.

The tour was revived as Sister Spit: The Next Generation in 2007, and has toured the United States annually since, with authors and performers such as Chinaka Hodge, Dorothy Allison, Lenelle Moise and Justin Vivian Bond. In this next incarnation, out of respect to the changing gender landscape of our queer and literary communities, Sister Spit welcomes artists of all genders, so long as they mesh with the tour's historic vibe of feminism, queerness, humor and provocation.

Sister Spit 2017 will tour the West Coast, featuring 7 artists who offer a critical, intersectional and often humorous lens to issues of feminism, race, size, class, identity, technology, gender and sexuality.
12:00 pm Mar 2nd
