Description

From the Severn to the Thames: Challenges to aquatic life

Professor Dave Morritt
Department of Biological Sciences

Aquatic life faces many challenges, both natural and man-made. From investigating responses of marine organisms to environmental stresses, to movement patterns and foraging behaviour through to studying the effects of pollutants and the biology of invasive species, the journey takes us from the Severn to the Thames via a number of overseas detours. The main emphasis of the lecture focuses on the topical issue of plastics pollution, considers the impacts on organisms and the environment and, in the process, illustrates the role of serendipity in science.
