Science Cafe: Endangered Species of Amphibians: Why Their Survival is Vital to Our Health

Feb 19, 2014 at 5:00 PM
Baker University Center Front Room

"Protecting amphibians protects us," says Associate Professor of Biological Sciences Scott Moody. What exactly does this mean? Because of their unique biology and relationship with the environment, relying on both land and streams, amphibians are excellent predictors of environmental health. Moody, who has spent more than 30 years at Ohio University studying and protecting various species of amphibians, will discuss the biology of amphibians, human impacts on their environment, and ultimately how important their habitats are to their existence and to us. He will bring both living and extinct amphibians to his café for a "show and tell" with the audience. Hop on over to the Front Room on Wed., Feb. 19, at 5 p.m. for Science Cafe, presented by Sigma Xi. Free coffee is offered to the first 50 attendees.
