Geo Lecture Hall (100), 24 Oxford St., Cambridge

Evolution Matters Lecture Series

 Many birds that live on islands have lost adaptations, such as the capacity to fly, typically thought to be fundamental to their evolutionary success. What is it about living on islands that drives these changes? Scott V. Edwards, Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, will discuss "Evolution and Conservation of Island Birds - Lessons from Genomics" focusing on how modern genomics research helps us understand the evolution and genetic diversity of island birds and how this research can help conservation efforts.
