We’ve all seen driftwood on the beach, but did you know that enough wood makes it to the sea floor that specialized animal communities use it as a home and some can even eat it? In this talk, you’ll dive to the depths of Monterey Bay with Dr. Judge to explore the diversity of animals that colonize sunken wood and the role that wood type, shape, and texture plays in shaping the animal communities that colonize it.
Jenna Judge is a recent doctoral graduate of the department of Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley. A life-long passion for nature and an intense curiosity for the deep-sea drove her to pursue research, and now she is seeking to apply her big picture perspective to solving environmental problems and engaging the public while doing so.
