Event - Distinguished Speakers: Peter and Rosemary Grant

Wednesday, April 5
Exploring Evolution of Darwin’s Finches

Peter and Rosemary Grant, Princeton University
Distinguished Speaker Series
7 pm, Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor (Note new location!)
Co-sponsored by the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Reads Program and the Ann Arbor District Library

Fourteen species of Darwin's finches evolved on the Galápagos islands and Cocos island in the last two-three million years. We use the results of long-term field studies of Galápagos populations to help us understand this classical example of adaptive radiation.

You can view the Grants' biography or a list of selected scientific articles on the Explore Evolution website.
