Can mice predict the future climate of Michigan? How long can a bass remember something that tastes really bad? Is changing sex a good thing? Can a scientist find happiness in Tahiti? These and other questions will be answered by Professor Fink as he provides some highlights of research and teaching in the Museum of Zoology, a center of biodiversity sciences at the University of Michigan. Some of the most treasured specimens from the research collections will be on hand.
