Next week my grad student friend and academic brother, Mike Logan will be in the area and has agreed to give a talk at our EXEB meeting (Weizhao has nicely agreed to switch to the 17/5 meeting so we could use his spot.).
Mike is currently an NSF postdoctoral fellow at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. He does exiting work on thermal biology, thermal adaptation, and its relevance to climate change. Most of his work has been with lizards but he has been involved in some recent projects with insects, so I think his work will be interesting and relevant to all of us. More details about Mike can be found on his website:
Below is an abstract for his talk. The talk will be about 30 minutes with plenty of time for discussion. All are welcome!
When: Tues, 29 Mar, 10:00
What: Talk, Discussion, Fika

The myth of the porcelain population: are we overestimating extinction risk by underestimating the power of evolution?
