Scott Smedley, Associate Professor of Biology
This talk describes how composting by contemporary human residents affects the ecology of scavenging animals, and how the historical construction of stone walls has had repercussions for modern-day wildlife.  Smedley will relate how the emerging approach of citizen science can contribute to such ecological research.
Common Hour intends to offer the Trinity community an opportunity to absent themselves from daily tasks and concerns, gather, and engage in topics of interest and enjoy performances, lectures, discussions, and readings that enrich our cultural and intellectual lives. The designated weekly hours also seek to showcase the best of what occurs within our campus community.  A light lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis during Thursday Common Hour. If you plan on bringing a class or group to a Thursday Common Hour program, please e-mail in order for adequate food to be requested.
