Ted Harris to present 'Blue-green algae and their link to phosphorus in Kansas lakes'
Ted Harris, an assistant research professor of aquatic ecology at the Kansas Biological Survey and Center of Ecological Research, will present a special seminar in the agronomy department on "Blue-green algae and their link to phosphorus in Kansas lakes" at 2:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, in 2002 Throckmorton Hall.
Harris' research primarily focuses on understanding factors that underpin harmful blue-green algae blooms, which represent a visual manifestation of aquatic pollution.
Harris is a native Midwesterner who received his bachelor's degrees in forestry and fisheries and wildlife from the University of Missouri, a master's degree in natural resources from the University of Idaho, and a doctorate with honors in ecology and evolutionary biology from the University of Kansas.
