Seabirds of the Oregon coast: Who is out there, what are they doing, and why should we care
with Dr. Rob Suryan
The Oregon coast is home to a wide array of seabirds, ranging from deep divers to long distance gliders. Dr. Rob Suryan will describe the diversity of seabirds that occur off our coast, techniques that scientists use to study these birds (you might be surprised!), and what role they play in marine ecosystems. Rob will also discuss the ecology, life history variability, and conservation of these amazing birds.
Dr. Rob Suryan is an Associate Professor – Senior Research in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center. For over 20 years Rob has studied the effects of environmental change on the reproductive biology, foraging ecology, and population dynamics of marine birds. He uses state-of-the-art electronics to study how individuals and populations respond to changes in their environment. Locally off Oregon, Rob applies results from many of these studies to address seabird-fishery interactions, environmental impacts of marine renewable energy development, and marine spatial planning.
