Dr. Frishcer is in the midst of a National Science Foundation-funded project examining the effects of rising temperatures on the marine ecosystem.

The lectures will be given by distinguished experts in the field but presented in terminology everyone can understand. Dolphin Reef’s standard dinner menu will be offered.
