The University of Michigan Press Great Lakes author event for April is in honor of spring and Earth Day! Celebrate with us by learning about one of the most destructive invasive species to ever enter the Great Lakes, the sea lamprey, and the history of the invasion, and monumental efforts to control them! We will be discussing the award-winning book "Great Lakes Sea Lamprey: The 70 Year War on a Biological Invader," by Cory Brant. There will be a Q&A with the author.
Cory Brant is a former post-doctoral researcher at the University of Michigan and Great Lakes Fishery Commission in Ann Arbor, Michigan. For over a decade, his work has focused on sea lampreys, particularly the species’ use of chemical communication and how to exploit that biology as a method of control.
This event will be in Zoom webinar and streamed to Facebook Live.
"Great Lakes Sea Lamprey" will be on sale for $13 and free shipping during the month of April. Just visit press.umich.edu and use the discount code "UMGL13BRANT" when you check out.
