Using the underdogs of the animal world to gain insights into impacts, recovery, and restoration after oil spills
Foraminifera? Periwinkles? Larval fish? Insects? Few people outside of the scientific community consider the impacts to these organisms when an oil spill occurs. Yet these organisms can be critical players in their ecosystems and could be used to guide restoration efforts. Each of our guest speakers give insights into the ecological role of these organisms, how oil impacts them and their environment, and how their recoveries can be used to inform restoration efforts.
