Birds and Cold Weather Adaptation
December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Most bird species enjoy warmer climes, but many have adapted to frigid conditions. How and why has this occurred? Dr. Sahas Barve will answer these and other questions about cold weather adaptation, with an emphasis on Himalayan birds. Amongst other degrees, Dr. Barve has a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Cornell University and is currently a Peter Buck Fellow at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
