Event Description

Heidi Hertler, PhD, Center Director, Turks and Caicos Islands, The School for Field Studies


A Dragon’s Caribbean Tale of Research and Adventure

Dr. Heidi Hertler is a BEES PhD alumna who joined SFS’s Turks and Caicos Island field station as Center Director in 2011. Her research interests include relationships between land use and coastal marine systems including mangroves, seagrasses and coral reefs and the integration of science and research into environmental strategies and policies for the conservation of biodiversity and coastal resources. She uses water chemistry, plant biology and invertebrate physiology to answer basic and applied questions. Through community outreach, we increase the local understanding of our impacts on the near shore environments; collect data that can be utilized by community member, presented at local and national conferences and in peer review publications; and encourage environmental stewardship of the marine environment through awareness of the impact we have on these systems.

Host: Dr. David Velinsky
