Wednesday, February 1, 2017 - When Insects Get Intimate
*Free event & refreshments*
Speaker: Marlene Zuk - Professor, Associate Dean for Faculty, Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior, University of Minnesota
Inspiring fear and fascination alike in humans, insects are capable of incredibly complex behavior. They display traits like personality, language, and childcare that operate on completely different pathways from our own. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, behavioral ecologist Marlene Zuk examines the bedroom lives of bugs, showing how six-legged sex lives can be just as interesting as our own.
Date: Wednesday, February 1st
Time: 4:30-6pm - Doors open at 4pm
Location: The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH)
Entry: TBD - Will be included in your reminder email prior to the event
