Musings from Australia
at 12:30 in the EEB lounge (BioSciences 4338)
This week EEB is a little different. Steve, recently returned from Australia, will be supplying everyone with plenty of pictures, stories, and life lessons from his travels. So come out, we’ll ply you with good food and strong coffee, and then regale you with stories thick with adventure and mystery. Everyone is welcome to attend!
Dr. Lougheed is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at Queen’s University and is the Director of the Queen’s University Biological Station. His research focuses on understanding the origins of biodiversity and he uses a variety of genetic, experimental, and comparative techniques to tackle this topic. He has worked extensively with birds, frogs, snakes, and other squamate reptiles. He is a passionate teacher and teaches several courses both in the field and classroom; field-course locations include: east Africa, Argentina, Costa Rica, and the Queen’s University Biological Station, to name a few. Steve is a naturalist and researcher par excellence. He is currently on sabbatical, and recently returned from Australia, but has kindly agreed to share some of his stunning Australian photos and travel adventures with us.
