SMP 4/22/06 | Applied Evolution: Domestication, Disease, Crime & Culture | Speaker: David Mindell

Saturday, April 22, 2006
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: David Mindell, Curator, U-M Museum of Zoology; Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Understand how evolutionary biology is much more than an explanatory concept, and that it is indispensable to the world we live in. When we domesticate wild species for agriculture or companionship; when we manage our exposure to pathogens and prevent or control epidemics; when we foster the diversity of species and safeguard the functioning of ecosystems; and even when we link biological crime scene evidence to suspects: in each of these cases, evolutionary biology is applied.
