Sharks, sturgeon, trout, and other species can be tagged acoustic transmitters so that they can be detected and tracked. Using simple beacons and telemetry equipment UC Davis scientists are able to identify the presence of an animal and examine species abundance, movement, feeding habits, diets, residence patterns, and more. Join Pete Klimley, director of the Biotelemetry Lab, to learn about the role of sensory physiology in orientation, predator-prey interactions, ultrasonic tracking, and telemetry. A $5 suggested donation is collected at the entrance, no-host bar at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m.
