NPS: Speaker on Green Turtle Ecosystems
March 7 @ 5:30 pm
National Park Service will host Alexandra Gulick, who will speak on “Green Turtles and Greener Pastures: The Role of Grazing in Caribbean Seagrass Ecosystems.” She will discuss the foraging and behavioral ecology of green turtles in seagrass ecosystems. Using herbivore “exclosures” and stationary benthic cameras, Gulick is evaluating the role of green turtle grazing in regulating the productivity of seagrass ecosystems and how seagrass pasture characteristics may influence green turtle grazing behavior at Buck Island Reef National Monument.
