TU’s first Science Café of new year to focus on marine plants

Thomas University’s first Science Café of the academic year on Tuesday, Sept. 25, will feature the discussion “Marine Plants: Including real-life examples of plat life in the ocean environment” presented by Dr. Sophie McCoy, an Assistant Professor of Biology at Florida State University.

Dr. McCoy is a community ecologist with broad interests in ecology, evolution, physiology and environmental chemistry. Her research focuses on macroalgal populations, intertidal communities, and the links between biology, environmental conditions and water chemistry.

Dr. McCoy uses a combination of field and laboratory methods to understand natural variability in marine populations, responses of species and communities to climate change and pollution.

Each Science Café begins with a reception with the speaker in the lobby of Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus at 6 p.m. followed by the presentation at 6:30 p.m. in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom. There is no admission charge, and the public is welcome.
