FORT mammal specialist Tom O'Shea will provide the keynote address at the First International Manatee and Dugong Conference, to be held at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta on March 23-24. Manatees and dugongs occur in waters of over 60 countries on five continents. Dr. O'Shea will give a broad overview of knowledge on the biology of these species (Order Sirenia) gained over the past 15 years. The address will feature an evaluation of recent advances by others in assessing the evolutionary history of Sirenia, and the relevance of that history to their future given possible scenarios for climate change.
