MSI Auditorium 1302
Free

This installment of the weekly EEMB lecture series will feature Professor James Nieh from the Division of Biological Sciences at UC San Diego. Research in Professor Nieh's lab examines how natural and man-made stressors affect the biology of and cognitively sophisticated behaviors exhibited by bees. Their research focuses on two areas: (1) the selective pressures that may have shaped the evolution of communication in highly social bees and (2) honey bee health. They use the tools of Behavioral Ecology, Chemical Ecology, Animal…

EEMB Seminar Series- Jeremy Yoder: Mutualism, Coevolution, and the Origins of Biodiversity

November 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
MSI Auditorium 1302
Free

This installment of EEMB's weekly lecture series features Jeremy Yoder, a professor in the Department of Biology at Cal State University Northridge. The abstract for Prof. Yoder's talk reads: "Intimate, mutually beneficial interactions between species have long been associated with diversification, as mutualist partners co-adapt and co-diverge. However, the forms of natural selection that arise from mutualism are less likely to promote diversification than selection arising from antagonistic interactions. How, then, can mutualism help to create greater biodiversity? My research…
