Title: Individual Variation and Its Effect on the Risk to Wildlife Populations
Date: October 21, 2014
2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Location: Online Webinar
Purpose: Featured Speakers:
Gordon Fox
Gordon Fox
(University of South Florida)

Gordon Fox’s is at the University of Florida’s Department of Integrative Biology. His current research interests include: [1] the consequences of within-population hetereogeneity for population dynamics, especially with regard to conservation; [2] the population dynamics of plants in a stochastic world, involving studies of fire-prone pines in Florida and on Long Island, and of a number of species of desert perennials in southern California; and [3] the ecology and evolution of reproductive timing in plants, and some related statistical problems. Some of this work is field-oriented, some is genetical, and some is theoretical.


Bruce Kendall
Bruce Kendall
(UC Santa Barbara)

Bruce Kendall is a quantitative ecologist whose research in population dynamics involves modeling and analysis of abundance (the number of individuals in a plant or animal population) and demographic (birth and death rate) data. He applies the science of population ecology both to the conservation of rare species and the management of harvested populations. His specific research interests include: processes that cause population abundances to fluctuate over time; predicting the extinction risk of rare species; patterns of individual growth in fluctuating environments and how they affect population growth rates; and the effects of current-driven dispersal on marine fish species. His funded research has included investigations into fish growth in estuaries and rivers, marine fisheries management, invasion biology, and the population consequences of among-individual heterogeneity in birth and death rates.

Endocrine Disruptors and Children’s Health

**Please send questions in advance. There is a link on the registration page Exit EPA Click for Disclaimer for your convenience.**

Featured Speakers:


Effects of Bisphenol A on Female Reproduction
University of Illinois)

Jodi A. Flaws
Jodi A. Flaws

The webinar will provide information on the effects of gestational exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) on the developing female reproductive system. It will also provide information on the transgenerational effects of BPA.


Maternal and Fetal Exposure to Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals: What we Know and What we can do
University of California, San Francisco

Tracey J. Woodruff
Tracey J. Woodruff

Dr. Woodruff will present findings on maternal and fetal exposures to endocrine disrupting chemicals, implications for health effects, and methods for synthesizing what is known about exposures to support prevention of harmful chemical exposures.


Early Exposures to Endocrine Disruptors and Effects on the Epigenome and Health Outcomes Later in Life
University of Michigan

Dana Dolinoy
Dana Dolinoy

Applying animal models and epidemiology to understand the mechanisms whereby endocrine disruptors cause epigenetic alterations that affect child health and whether nutritional exposures exacerbate or ameliorate these effects.


Children's Exposure to Flame Retardant Chemicals and Potential Health Effects
Duke University

Heather Stapleton
Heather Stapleton

This presentation will summarize current research on the measurement of children's exposure to both phased-out and new-use flame retardant chemicals in indoor environments. The potential health effects and toxicities associated with new-use flame retardant chemicals used in furniture will also be discussed.

Title: EPA STAR Black Carbon Progress Review Meeting
Date: November 13 - 14, 2014
Location: EPA in Research Triangle Park, Auditorium C111
and Online Webinar
Purpose:

Please join us for a STAR research progress review on research projects on black carbon, air quality, and global change. STAR grantees and EPA scientists will discuss progress on their projects on this pollutant, which contributes to human health impacts, visibility degradation, and climate change. These projects focus on various aspects of the black carbon issue, such as better accounting for its emissions, tracking its climate-relevant properties as it ages in the atmosphere, and better representing its ability to form cloud droplets.
