Also, there’s several great lectures happening this week:

Tuesday, 11/10 – “Using phylogenies to bridge community ecology and evolutionary biology”
Location: Ecology bldg auditorium, 4:00pm
by Patrick Stephens

Tuesday, 11/10 – “Toxins in Newborn Babies: What are the Consequences?”
Location: 104 Conner Hall, 5:30-7:00pm

The human race is now polluted with hundreds of industrial chemicals – with little or no understanding of the consequences. Even babies are born pre-polluted with as many as 300 industrial chemicals in their bodies when they enter the world. What are the implications not only for human health but for our sense of bodily integrity?

Lecture by Ken Cook, Environmental Working Group, followed by expert panel discussion with Dr. Jeffrey W. Fisher, UGA Interdisciplinary Toxicology Program and Dr. Maria E. Faase, Director of Neonatology at Athens Regional Medical Center.

Co-sponsored by Office of Environmental Sciences, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences; Environmental Ethics Certificate Program; and Knight Chair in Health and Medical Journalism, Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication

Wednesday, 11/11 – “Lost for 120 years – Rediscovery of the robust redhorse and the importance of natural history museums”
Location: 117 Ecology Bldg., 1:25pm
by Dr. Byron Freeman, Director, Georgia Museum of Natural History

Have a great week,

Georgia and Mark
