Keely Carroll, Professor of Biology and Director of the Sierra College Natural History Museum

Event Details

The tail of a peacock used to drive Darwin crazy! Why would this bird have this large appendage that makes it easier for the local tigers to eat him? From an evolutionary standpoint, it just didn't seem to make sense, unless you consider it in the spotlight of sexual selection.

The evolutionary biology of mating systems attempts to explain that tail, why birds do funny dances, why some birds build structures just to impress the girls, why those girls care, and even why we only have two genders. Join Keely Carroll as she discusses all of this and more on Friday February 21st at 7:30pm.

Please be advised that this talk may not be suitable for younger ears.
