The first World Seagrass Association Seagrass Seminar Series seminar will feature Dr. Jonathan Lefcheck, who will present: Towards a global seagrass monitoring network: The past, present, and future of collaboration.
Dr. Lefcheck is currently the Tennenbaum Coordinating Scientist for the MarineGEO Network at the Smithsonian Institution and is based at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater, MD, USA. He is a marine community ecologist and biodiversity scientist who has worked on a variety of coastal ecosystems from seagrasses, oyster and coral reefs to salt marshes, kelp forests, and deep-sea hydrothermal vents. He also develops novel statistical tools to help understand natural systems, particularly the growing technique of “structural equation modeling.” His current focus is on coordinating global seagrass monitoring and synthesis through MarineGEO and SeagrassNet – two efforts you will hear about during the seminar.
The seminar will take place on 31 March 2021 from 12:00 – 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (US and Canada).
