With the covid epidemic we thought it would be nice (and fun) to get together and talk green crab science one morning this summer. This is an informal event. All of the presenters listed to the right have agreed to give a short 5-min presentation on some of their latest research, and then join in a group conversation about the meaning of the results. This is “upside-down” from most scientific meetings where the presenters get most of the time and too often there is no time for meaningful discussion. Here, group discussion is our central goal.
We’ll be discussing 3 general topics:
Green crab population trends
Green crab impacts on the ecosystem
Green crab basic biology
We’ll also devote some time at the end of our 3-hour session to talk about future needs relating to any of these topics. For example, we keep talking about a centralized green crab monitoring program for Maine, but never do it. Maybe it’s time?
If you are a bit of a science nerd, join us. We’ll send you the ZOOM link to the meeting.
