Tanzania by Lance Gregory: A tale of pirates, freak storms.... and science!
Lance Gregory will talk about an expedition to study the macroecology of Vibrio cholerae in Lake Tanganyika. Lance is the operations manager for the Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) Survey which relies on the volunteer support of shipping companies to tow CPRs on regular shipping routes across the globe. This ensures valuable data sets, currently spanning 88 years and nearly seven million miles, and provides a scientific tool for international scientists and policy makers.
Uganda, Pearl of Africa? Steve Oliver talks about teaching adventures on the shores of Lake Victoria and tracking the mountain gorilla in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.
Lecture with optional supper.
