Meeting Description: 11th Annual Roger Tory Peterson Memorial Lecture
Internationally renowned marine ecologist Jeremy Jackson will discuss the future of the world?s oceans. Decades of over-fishing, habitat destruction, and ocean warming have left our marine ecosystems and biodiversity in a state of crisis. But with successful management and conservation strategies, Jackson sees hope for renewing the health and sustainability of our oceans. Dr. Jackson is the William E. and Mary B. Ritter Professor at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Senior Scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Following the lecture, there will be a ticketed reception at the Harvard Museum of Natural History. Significant support for the 2008 Roger Tory Peterson Memorial Lecture is provided by Houghton Mifflin.
