EEB Seminar: November 9th

This week the department welcomes Marc Johnson from the University of Toronto, Mississauga.

 

Evolution in the urban jungleMarc Johnson

Although the world is becoming increasingly urbanized and the majority of humans now live in cities, we know little about how urbanization and human activity affect the evolution of life around us. In this talk, I will examine how urbanization affects adaptive and non-adaptive evolution and how this might affect species conservation, ecosystem functioning, and the control of pests in our cities.

The EEB Seminars run weekly, on Thursdays, in the EEB Lounge of the BioSciences Complex, Room 4338, from 12:30-1:30pm. This week there will be a pizza lunch to follow in the EEB Lounge.
