5th Annual Lacawac Ecology Conference
Saturday, September 24th 2016
The Lacawac Ecology Conference (LEC) is our annual fall conference. LEC is a great venue for connecting with regional researchers (faculty and students), discussing research ideas in an informal setting, and building new collaborations. LEC is attended by faculty and students from more than 15 institutions of higher education each year. Registration must be received by September 13, 2016. Space is limited - register early!
Registration is $75 (includes breakfast, lunch and snacks). Lodging is available at an additional cost in our historic lodge.
This year our keynote speaker is Dr. Robyn Smyth from the Bard Center for Environmental Policy. Dr. Smyth's research expertise includes coupling physical and biological processes in lakes and the ocean and aquatic ecosystem management. Current collaborative research projects include modeling the effects of vertical mixing and ultraviolet radiation on primary productivity in the Southern Ocean and understanding the role of climate forcing and hydrodynamics on harmful algal blooms and outbreaks of disease in aquatic organisms in lakes. She is an adjunct scientist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Milbrook, NY and a member of the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) which seeks to utilize high frequency sensor data to better understand and manage lake ecosystems.
