CCPO SEMINAR PROBES BIVALVE SHELLS FOR ANSWERS ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT

Clams store data in their shells about environmental conditions they encounter, according to the research of Juli Harding, a Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences (VIMS) researcher who will speak Monday, Nov. 26, in the Fall Seminar Series of Old Dominion University's Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography.

Her talk will be at 3:30 p.m. in Room 3200 of the Innovation Research Park @ ODU building at 4111 Monarch Way on campus.

Harding, a community ecologist in the molluscan ecology program of VIMS' Department of Fisheries Science, has done research relating bivalve growth characteristics-mainly signatures deposited in their shells-to various environmental conditions, including warming ocean waters.

The speaker holds a Ph.D. in marine science from the College of William and Mary.
