Twice as Easy to Catch-Alaska's Wood FrogSeptember 14, 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Windward Campus, Hale ‘Imiloa 111
A Community Forum in Chemistry presentation with Dr. Mari Reeves. The wood frog can be found throughout Alaska, and is the only frog to survive north of the Arctic Circle. Its claim to fame is the amazing ability to freeze solid in the winter, then thaw to life in the spring. In this forum, Dr. Mari Reeves will talk about the prevalence, multiple stressors, including chemical toxicants that cause the abnormalities in these mysterious creatures.
As a biologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Alaska, Mari Reeves studies the effects of pollution on wildlife. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from UC Berkeley, a Master’s of Science in Natural Resources from Cornell, and more recently a PhD in Ecology from the University of California at Davis. When not capturing small creatures or swatting the state's famously voracious mosquitoes, Mari likes to hang out with her family, and ski, run, bike, and fish in her home of Kodiak, AK.
