NEWS RELEASE EW COLLEGE 1-83 1-3-68 SARASOTA, FLORIDA 33578 Ref: Furman C. Arthur 813 / 355-7131 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE A talk about sense organs of sharks together with a 22-minute film on shark behavior will be given at New College Friday (January 5) by Dr. Perry W. Gilbert, executive director of the Mote Marine Laboratory. The talkq which is given in connection with a biology seminar being conducted by Professor John B. Morrill, is open to the public. A second talk, one on animal communication, will be given a week later at the same hour by Dr. William N. Tavolga of the American Museum of Natural History and the City College of New York. They are the first two in a series planned by Dr. Morrill in conjunction with a course in biologic organisms and which he hopes will both supplement and complement the course. more


Page 2 Shark talk Each of the meetings will be held in the teaching auditorium of Hamilton Center on the college's East Campus. Dr. Gilbert, who joined the Mote Laboratory this past fall as its executive director, has spent several seasons in the Bahamas, Mexico, and the South Pacific, studying the physiology and behavior of shark species. He is chairman of the American Institute of Biological Sciences Shark Research Panel, responsible for coordinating shark studies in all parts of the world. Educated at Dartmouth and Cornell, and a professor at the latter since 1937, Dr. Gilbert in 1962 lectured on sharks and shark hazards at leading universities and research institutes in many parts of the world. Two years later he led an expedition to the Tuamotu Archipelago in the Pacific to study the feeding and attack patteras of sharks. Other talks in the series will be announced as they are scheduled. #
