Judith S. Weis

Judith S. Weis, professor of biological sciences at Rutgers University, will discuss and sign copies of her new book, Walking Sideways: The Remarkable World of Crabs. She will explain their unique biology and natural history, as well as their use as food and commercial value in the fishing and aquaculture industries. Her presentation will cover all things crab, from the recently discovered Yeti crab found in deep sea vents to the Dungeness crabs typically seen only on dinner plates and the hermit crabs often kept as pets.
