Dr. Susan Srigley
All religious traditions speak to the mystery of death and its spiritual power. In the West, the hospice movement began behind monastery walls, where ill travellers stopped for hospitality. The sick were given physical and spiritual comfort, and the dying were recognized as essential guides for the living. The collected wisdom from this healing hospitality became known as the Ars Bene
Moriendi – The Art of Dying Well. Dr. Susan Srigley (Religions and Cultures), a palliative care volunteer who teaches courses on Death, Dying and Spirituality, will discuss the practices of spiritual care and the art of dying well.

Scents and sensibility: How fishes and amphibians use their sense of smell to avoid being eaten
Human beings tend to rely on vision to interact with their environment. In aquatic systems, chemical cues tend to be more reliable for animals to gain information from their environment, particularly in regards to detecting and avoiding predators. Most fishes and amphibian larvae have a well-developed sense of smell and can use odours in the water to determine presence/absence of predators, what predators have been eating and even the size of the predator. This strongly suggests the importance of being able to smell in order to survive. However, this leads to serious concerns in polluted environments (e.g., heavy metals, organic pollutants and toxins produced by blue-green algae) which can impair the ability of aquatic animals to smell their surroundings which would alter the ability to survive encounters with predators.
