Brian Farrell's lecture, Biology of Consciousness, live broadcasted world-wide, draws an audience that packs the Geological Lecture Hall at the Museum of Natural History. And--earns a well-deserved review in The Harvard Gazette. Cheers to Brian!
Congratulations to Alyssa and Sang! Both have been awarded DRCLAS summer travel grants for their field research in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Alyssa and Sang will be exploring Chrysomelidae and Cerambycidae diversity, respectively.
Students presented their senior theses at a poster session at Northwest Labs today. Farrell Lab senior, Paige Kouba, presented her thesis, "Aedes dance party: Interbreeding and hybridization between Aedes triseriatus and Aedes hendersoni in Eastern MA." We look forward to seeing where Paige's future research takes her (and her dancing bees!).
Join Professors David Carrasco and Brian D. Farrell as they discuss how the migration of species in Mesoamerica and the Caribbean contributes to the evolution of ecological complexes, such as seeds, human families, and cultural practices, like religious rituals and music. This discussion will be centralized over a presentation of various foods that embrace rich histories and stories of migration.
