Come to the Museum’s Science Cafés for an engaging conversation about a variety of science topics. A comfortable atmosphere provides the setting for lively discussions this spring.


Biodiversity of Coral Reefs: The Inside Story, with Gustav Paulay, Ph.D., Curator of Marine Malacology, Florida Museum.

Coral reefs are the most diverse marine ecosystems. As spectacular as they look, with large numbers of the corals and fish, most of the diversity occurs within the matrix of the reef in an intricate labyrinth of nooks and crevices that permeate the reef fabric. Learn about the fascinating and bizarre organisms that inhabit the matrix, how little we know about marine life and what the future holds.


Space is limited for these FREE programs, please RSVP via Eventbrite. (Waiting list available.)
