Field Immersion

How Curiosity, Natural History, and Collaboration Have Led to Ecological Discoveries along the Californias

 

Diana Steller, Ph.D.
Research Biologist and Diving Safety Officer, Moss Landing Marine Laboratories

 

Scientific discoveries are made in a myriad of ways and often start with the simple act of being curious. Natural patterns surround us but take time to truly see. This presentation is about observing patterns, becoming curious about what influences them, and discovering the natural history behind them. It’s also about the rich human collaborations that can result. While exploring the coasts of California and the Baja California peninsula, the speaker has made numerous discoveries of previously unknown or understudied ecological wonders. 

 

Please join Diana Steller to learn about these new discoveries.


Science Sunday is for everyone interested in the world around them. Join us on the third Sunday of every month (except December) for a public lecture from a marine scientist, who presents current research and topics in an entertaining and easy-to-understand format, with up-to-date photos, video, and discussion. 

  • Lectures are one hour long and take place at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center at 1:30 PM.
  • Doors open to the lecture hall at 1:00 PM.Screen shot 2015-02-26 at 11.27.40 AM
