The Berkshire Mammal Group and the Cole Museum of Zoology are hosting the University of Reading’s Dr. Manuela Gonzalez-Suarez. Manuela is a conservation biologist doing mostly large-scale computational research now, but for her PhD Manuela worked in the field with a charming marine mammal: the California sea lion. During this talk, Manuela will cover some interesting taxonomic and natural history aspects of this species and explain her own research on sea lion habitat preferences and conservation challenges including observed population declines and what they could mean in light of observed genetic differentiation among colonies of sea lions within the Gulf.
