Lowcountry Lecture: Ephemeral Wetlands
May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Date/Time: Tuesday, May 23, 6:30 PM
Location: The Citadel’s Duckett Hall Biology Auditorium
2 Jones Ave, Charleston, SC 29403
Lecture Topic: The ecology and conservation of isolated wetlands in the Lowcountry
Speaker: Professor Dan McGlinn, College of Charleston
Lecture Description: Isolated wetlands are small seasonally wet areas that represent important habitats for many plants and animals. Despite their importance, land managers and conservation priorities often ignore or overlook isolated wetlands given their small total area and discrete nature. I will present the results of a study my lab carried out examining if bird biodiversity differed between isolated wetlands and upland pine savannas. I will also share our recent efforts to reintroduce Canby’s dropwort, a federally endangered plant, back into some of these habitats.
Tasty snacks will be provided after the lecture (BYO non-alcoholic beverage or water bottle). We will meet in our previous location in The Citadel’s Duckett Hall Biology Auditorium, 2 Jones Ave, Charleston, SC 29403. Free parking is available after 5:00 PM in the parking lot south of Richardson Street, accessible from Mims Ave. Enter Duckett Hall from Jones Ave and take your first left from the stairwell into the Biology Auditorium.
