Join us Wednesday evening, April 19, at 7:00 in Andrews Hall, Room 101, at the College of William and Mary. Bird Club research grant winners Ohad Paris and Juan Botero will be presenting their findings. Both are Masters students in the Biology Department at William & Mary, and both are working on the issue of mercury pollution. In an integrated presentation, Ohad will talk about how mercury exposure affects nesting, in particular whether a small amount of mercury at a young age is enough to hurt breeding later in life. Juan examines the effect of mercury on cell aging, also known as oxidative stress. His findings get at the specific ways that mercury is bad for birds...and of course the same likely applies to people.
