Professors' Perspectives: Adrienne Correa
Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Program
BioSciences at Rice
Talk at noon at Rice Gallery
Yusuke Asais installation uses soil to depict worlds within worlds full of people, plants, and animals. Community ecologist Adrienne Correa will connect Asai’s work with the incredible microbial diversity that inhabits familiar spaces, including the dirt in our garden or neighborhood park and our own bodies. Correa studies coral reef ecology and the critical role microbes play in the persistence and function of reef environments.
