Baylor University's biology department will host a series of lectures in March and April aimed at providing insight to various research topics for faculty and students.

The seminars begin Wednesday, March 15, with the topic "Resource limitation, competition, and herbivory in the plankton," presented by James P. Grover, associate professor in the biology department of the University of Texas at Arlington.

Upcoming seminars include "Coupling micrometeorological measurements with a forest process model at alpine treeline" with David M. Cairns, assistant professor in the geography department of Texas A&M University, March 29; a topic that is yet to be announced by Julie Cross Steele, assistant education director with the Fort Worth Museum, April 5; and "Epiphytic algae: potential contributors to aquatic plant decay?" presented by Robert Neeley, professor and interim department head in the biology department of Eastern Michigan University, April 19.
