Description

The Academy Town Square series of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and WHYY’s The Pulse present "How the Urban Jungle Drives Evolution: A Conversation with Menno Schilthuizen," Wednesday, April 11, at 6:30 p.m.

Evolutionary biologist Menno Schilthuizen is among a growing number of urban ecologists studying how manmade environments are affecting the evolution of animals and plants. Example: some urban blackbirds sing at a higher pitch than their rural cousins to be heard over the din of traffic. In this free Academy Town Square, WHYY’s The Pulse Host Maiken Scott engages the author in a fascinating conversation based on his new book Darwin Comes to Town: How the Urban Jungle Drives Evolution. Academy entomologist Isa Betancourt fills us in on what’s happening in Philly based on her Logan Square fountain insect survey. Following the fun and enlightening exchange, Schilthuizen will sign copies of his book.

This is event is free of charge, but registration is required. Cash bar opens at 5:30 p.m. and the conversation begins at 6:30 p.m.
