The topic of Monday's Conservation Biology discussion is:

	"Eutrophication and change in species richness on Lake Victoria"

	Thirty years ago Lake Victoria was one of the most biodiverse areas 
in the world.  Exotic species introduction led to a decline in hundreds 
of endemic species since then; most are now identified as endangered or 
extinct by the World Conservation Union.  Come discuss this and other 
environmental problems on Lake Victoria, such as eutrophication or the 
recent introduction of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), with Mary 
Plummer of the Field Naturalist Program.  Mary has researched these 
issues in Mwanza, Tanzania, on the shores of Lake Victoria.

	Please join us on Monday, November 18 from noon to 1 pm in 105 Aiken.
