Description

March 13, 2013 -- David Lipset, Professor of Anthropology, College of Liberal Arts

Tropical mangrove forests occupy bays, estuaries and river inlets. Their adaptation to waterlogged soil, ecology, reproductive cycles and native fauna have been studied by biologists. Their regional distribution has been thoroughly mapped. Most recently, they were afforded global value as the United Nations associated them with climate change mitigation. Lipset will present data from ongoing research in which he brings cosmopolitan views of mangrove environments into dialogue with local views of the Murik Lakes, a mangrove lagoon in the estuary of the Sepik River in Papua New Guinea.
