Are Seagrasses Drowning or Being Poisoned? Worldwide diebacks of seagrass ecosystems Other events...
A public lecture by Ole Pedersen, University of Copengagen and 2013 IAS Professor-at-Large.

Seagrasses suffer worldwide and we are not sure why. Should we care about it? This lecture will argue that we should indeed care, as seagrasses also protect against coastal erosion, they promote clear water and they host juveniles of several important fish species. In the lecture, Professor Pedersen will discuss two complementary processes causing diebacks of these crucial marine ecosystems asphyxiation and poisoning. Both are related to human exploitation of the sea and also to global climate changes. Bookings: www.ias.uwa.edu.au/lectures/pedersen or RSVP to [email protected] or 6488 1340
