Lindsey Dougherty’s love of the sea eventually led her to UC Berkeley, where she is now a graduate student focusing on one of the ocean’s more unusual critters: a clam that flashes in the deep.
This behavior earned it the nickname ‘disco clam,’ and Dougherty is working with UC Berkeley’s Roy Caldwell, professor of integrative biology, to explore how and why it flashes its mirrored lips.
Dr. Tyrone Hayes, an assistant professor of integrative biology at the University of California, Berkeley, will present "From Silent Spring to Silent Night: A Tale of Toads and Men."

Imagine eating at your favorite restaurant and being told that the salad on your plate was harvested from the cracks in the sidewalk in West Oakland. Would you eat it? Two professors from UC Berkeley think you should. Their project is called Berkeley Open Source Food.
“Science for the Parks, the Parks for Science: The Next Century,” a new video collaboration by UC Berkeley and the National Park Service, which takes viewers along with scientists taking the measure of changes in Yosemite.
UC Berkeley was a key player in decisions made during the founding of Yosemite, and, along with influential alumni, drove the effort to establish the National Park Service. The video was made as part of the NPS’s celebration of its centennial this year, which focuses science in the parks.
