Complicated Choruses: What we can learn from animal calls

Presented by Nathan Harness
Graduate Student in Biological Sciences
University of Missouri

Nathan's talk will broadly discuss how advertisement calls can teach us about the biodiversity of life on earth. We can learn about how calls have diversified, and what sorts of evolutionary pressures might be responsible for the diversity we hear in our own backyards.

Please don't forget to bring your cup, plate and utensils! There will be a fine of $0.25 if you need to use the house plates/utensils.

Drinks: Marlene Willick    Dessert: Carolyn Flynn    Non-dessert: Joy Rushing
