Hosted on the campus of Southern Nazarene University (SNU) - this week - Dr. John Cossel will be giving a lecture on "Naked Canaries" in the Beaver Science Lecture Hall, S 102, Friday, October 7, at 1 pm. A reception will follow. Historically, before modern air quality monitoring instruments, canaries were used to warm miners of dangerous air quality. Amphibians such as frogs are our "Naked Canaries" today warning us of polluted environmental conditions. Dr. John Cossel is a Professor of Biology at Northwest Nazarene University, Nampa, Idaho. Additionally, Dr. Cossells Photography Exhibition is currently on display, in the SNU Webster Commons, viewable from the main areas of the Commons First Floor. Alongside wonderful images, Dr. Cossell provides careful analysis and descriptions that highlight situations that shape global shifts due to human use of pesticides and other contaminants.
