Tim Dorsey is almost a native Floridian: he was born in Indiana, but moved to Florida at the age of one and grew up in a small town north of Miami called Riviera Beach. Tim got his feet wet as a reporter for The Alabama Journal covering the police and courts from 1983 to 1987, when he joined the The Tampa Tribune. Beginning as a general assignment reporter, he also worked as a political reporter in the Tribune’s Tallahassee bureau and as the Tribune’s night metro editor. In 1999, Tim left the paper to write full time, publishing 16 novels based in Florida: Florida Roadkill, Hammerhead Ranch Motel, Orange Crush, Triggerfish Twist, The Stingray Shuffle, Cadillac Beach, Torpedo Juice, The Big Bamboo, Hurricane Punch, Atomic Lobster, Nuclear Jellyfish, Gator A-Go-Go, Electric Barracuda, When Elves Attack, Pineapple Grenade and The Riptide Ultra-Glide. Join us to hear Tim discuss his work.

Spinal Deformities in Captive Sand Tiger Sharks: What have we Learned?
Dr. Huber is an Associate Professor of Biology at The University of Tampa where he teaches a variety of courses in anatomy, physiology, ecology, and evolution. He and colleagues from The Florida Aquarium have focused their attention on causes of spinal deformity in captive sand tiger sharks to improve husbandry practices and reduce pressure on wild populations for exhibit specimens. Dr. Huber has been featured in a variety of media outlets, ranging from prime-time television to children’s books. He has appeared in nine shows on National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and the History Channel, and his research on the feeding biomechanics of white sharks was recently listed in Discover Magazine’s Top 100 Science Stories of the Year.
