The experts include Donald Scavia, professor of natural resources and director of Michigan Sea Grant. Scavia's research interests include the effects of natural and anthropogenic stresses on the Great Lakes and marine ecosystems. Recently, much of his research has focused on human-caused "dead zones" in Lake Erie and in the Gulf of Mexico.
J. David Allan, professor and acting SNRE dean will also offer his advice. Allan's research interests center on the influence of human activities on the condition of rivers and their watersheds. In his teaching, he emphasizes the application of ecological knowledge to species conservation and ecosystem management.
Also, James Diana, professor of natural resources will attend. Major research interests include the ecology of Great Lakes fishes, particularly pike and muskellunge. Diana's teaching interests center on fish ecology, aquaculture, and environmental sciences.
