170 & 182 Dennison Building
Speaker: Vaughn Cooper, Assistant Professor (U-M Molecular, Cellular, & Developmental Biology)Evolution, the process of biological change, takes place on many time scales. Some 'living fossils' remain virtually unchanged for hundreds of millions of years, while each winter brings a newly adapted flu bug. This lecture will explore new experiments and ideas about time in evolution. It is the third in a series of lectures on time developed as part of the Rackham Summer Interdisciplinary Institute.*
*The first three Saturday Morning Physics talks in the Winter 2003 series were part of the Rackham Summer Interdisciplinary Institute's, Fourth Dimension. Two concerts, coupled with the lecture series, presented music reflecting on themes of time.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
