Sunday, May 6, 10:15 am. Fellowship Service. Presentation: Marine Algae on Japanese Tsunami-DebrisTsunami Debris: Were they an Invasion Risk? By Gayle Hansen, a CCUUF member and an Associate Professor (Senior Research) in the Dept. of Botany and Plant Pathology at OSU. Gayle is a taxonomic expert on the benthic marine algae of the NE Pacific. She has worked extensively on the algae of south-central Alaska, British Columbia, Washington and Oregon, including surveys of Oregon’s subtidal reserves. With the arrival of the Agate Beach Dock in Newport, she began a 5-year study on the algae occurring on debris from the 2011 Great Tōhoku Earthquake and Tsunami. Working with 2 of her Japanese colleagues who specialize in DNA sequencing, she completed a 3-part illustrated account on the identification and morphological description of 80 of the species (http://dx.doi.org/10.5399/osu/1110 & seq.). In order to determine the invasion risk of these species to Oregon and Washington, she also carried out a comparative analysis of the life histories, global distributions, and genetic properties of the populations of these species on debris, in Japan, and in the NE Pacific. This latter study will be the focus of her talk.
