Steve Klaine, a biology professor who specializes in environmental toxicology, will keynote the Ed Cape Seminar on Friday at Texas State University.
The seminar will be held 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 25 in the teaching theater at the university’s Alkek Library. The event is named in honor of the late Edward Matthew Cape, a descendant of the early San Marcos settler whose family name is immortalized by Cape’s Dam and Cape’s Camp on the San Marcos River
Klaine, a professor of environmental toxicology and director of the Institute of Environmental Toxicology at Clemson University, will deliver a presentation titled “Emerging Contaminants: Water Quality Challenges in the Midst of a Technological Revolution.”
Klaine holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University in Cincinnati and a master’s degree and a doctorate in environmental science, both from Rice University. His research focuses on the effects of contaminants in the aquatic systems and strategies for balancing land use with environmental quality.
The series is funded by the university’s Aquatic Resources Program and the Thornton family, which has owned riverside property surrounding Cape’s Dam for more than a century.
Edward Cape is credited with helping choreograph adoption of a state law that created the Guadalupe River Authority in 1933, expanded two years later to include the Blanco River basin. He also helped push through construction of Canyon Lake in Comal County, working alongside then-U.S. Rep. Lyndon B. Johnson, a Texas State University alumnus, and other lawmakers.
