Dr. Romero & graduate student publish paper
Dr. Aldemaro Romero, Biological Sciences,
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.

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
