Turloughs – vanishing lakes or vanishing fields?
Lecture by Micheline Sheehy Skeffington
Friday 11th June at 8pm
Delivered by Zoom
Micheline Sheehy Skeffington will discuss the geological nature of Turloughs. These seasonal lakes appear in karstic regions forming in the winter when the water table is high, and disappearing in the summer months when the water table is low.

Principal research interests include turlough vegetation, limestone grasslands, saltmarsh vegetation, as well as the diverse aspects such as effects of overgrazing in Connemara uplands, ethnobotany in tropical rainforests, and organic horticulture in Cuba.
