Evolution Matters Lecture Series

The biological diversity found on an island is closely related to the history of its formation. Islands such as New Zealand, Tasmania, New Caledonia, and Madagascar formed when the supercontinents Pangea and Gondwana broke apart millions of years ago. These islands inherited organisms from their continents of origin, but in the process of becoming isolated, the organisms diversified in ways—and at rates—that were unique. Gonzalo Giribet will discuss the evolutionary processes at play on these continental islands.

Series supported by a generous gift from Drs. Herman and Joan Suit
