Understanding whale behavior in the wild is challenging, particularly because these animals spend so much of their time underwater. Join Southwest Fisheries Science Center researcher and Scripps graduate Aimee Lang as she describes how she and her colleagues are using genetic analyses of gray whales to gain valuable insight into their behavior, migratory patterns, and distribution across the Pacific – information critical for managing the gray whale population in the North Pacific.
Date: February 11 from 6:30-8 p.m.
