Presentation Title: The "Bugs" Have a Bug: Disease Ecology of Caribbean Spiny Lobsters
Description: Approximately 97% of all animal species are invertebrates and it is estimated that several million additional invertebrate species are yet to be described. Likewise, the diversity of diseases of marine invertebrates is vast and growing. Dr. Clark’s research interests involve various aspects of the causative agent of disease in the Caribbean spiny lobster and corals. Dr. Clark’s talk will focus on the interactions between this lethal virus and the marine environment.
