Diego Narvaez, an Old Dominion University doctoral student in ocean, earth and atmospheric sciences, will present "Connectivity of Oyster Populations in Delaware Bay: A Modeling Study" at 3:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 16, in the Spring 2009 Seminar Series of ODU's Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography (CCPO).

The talk in Room 3200 of ODU's Innovation Research Park@ODU Building 1 will be preceded by a reception with refreshments beginning at 3 p.m. The seminars in the series are free and open to the public.

Narvaez's work combines models of population genetics, larval growth behavior and circulation to investigate the relative importance of physical and biological processes in the dispersion of genes and larvae of the Eastern oyster.
