Evolution Speaker Series - 2009

2009 is the bicentennial of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species. The field of evolutionary biology has come a long way in the past 150 years. Research in evolution provides insights in areas of immediate social relevance such as medicine, agriculture, and conservation. In addition, evolutionary research has shed light on the understanding of the origins of life, the path of human evolution, and the complex ecological relationships necessary for life. This year, NESCent, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, and the Keck Center at North Carolina State University are pleased to sponsor a series of free public presentations on evolution and evolutionary research. In addition to invited speakers from other areas, the series will take advantage of the strong evolutionary biology community at the local universities and provide an opportunity for the public to meet outstanding researchers from local univeristies. Presentations will be held at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences throughout the year.
