SciCafe: The Whole-Life Catalog: Why and How We Should Map and Understand the Biosphere
October 3, 2012
Kick off the new season of SciCafe with Museum paleontologist and Provost of Science Michael J. Novacek. Dr. Novacek will discuss why and how we should create a comprehensive inventory of species, understand the evolutionary relationships of the major branches of life, and probe the connections between the genome and the more external traits of organisms that their genomes influence. Using amazing cyber-technology, we can explore the evolution and organization of life as never before.
SciCafe is proudly sponsored by
