Podcast: SciCafe—The Evolution of Skin



Skin is the body’s largest organ, and one with a complex cultural and evolutionary past. In this SciCafe from the spring, biological anthropologist Nina Jablonski discusses how human skin evolved, particularly as an adaptation to ultraviolet radiation.

The SciCafe took place at the Museum on May 2, 2012.
