Dr. Romero to give opening lecture at symposium
Dr. Aldemaro Romero, Biological Sciences, will give the opening lecture at the annual Whaling History Symposium in New Bedford, Mass., next month. The title of his address will be "Yankee Whaling in the Caribbean and its Impact in Local Culture: The Logbooks Speak." This summarizes 15 years of marine mammal exploitation and historical research conducted with emphasis on his utilization of logbooks as source for statistical analysis on the rate of exploitation of whales and dolphins in the Caribbean. He will also present a video that captures the songs of local whalers in the Caribbean today, which are derived from those sang by Yankee whalers who visited those waters in the 19th century. This is a symposium by invitation only that gathers the world’s experts on whaling history and includes scholars from Harvard, Emory University and the Smithsonian Institution.
