Dr. Romero & graduate student publish paper
Dr. Aldemaro Romero, Biological Sciences, Dr. Romero shown here with another student examining a whale skeletonand graduate student Shelly Kannada recently had a paper accepted for publication in the prestigious Canadian Journal of Zoology. The paper disputes conventional wisdom on the causes for the depletion of whale populations in the North Atlantic showing that the Basque, Dutch, German, Danish, and British fleets killed hundreds of thousands of whales in little more than a century. Romero and Kannada hypothesized that the extinction of gray whales in the North Atlantic was the result of the so-called “Little Ice Age” disrupting the natural habitat for this species for hundred of years. Also, the original populations of whales had to be much more larger than previously assumed.

CSI and Pre-Law Summer Camps start June 19
Two camps will be offered this summer exclusively for high school students interested in Pre-Law or Crime Scene Investigation (CSI). The camps will be held June 19-30. The CSI Camp will provide “hands-on” experience at re-constructed crime scenes, and in the lab and classroom. Students will learn how to create an investigative plan and understand the connections between crime scenes, the lab, interrogation, and the courtroom.
  Pre-Law Camp is designed for students interested in learning more about law or for those who are considering a career in law. The week’s activities are designed to introduce students to legal thinking and effective argument. Students will also experience a simulated law school class, by putting their new skills into practice and participating as lawyers and judges in a simulation of a Supreme Court case.  For details, see the NewsPage.
