|LaDuke presents biology seminar on Galapagos visit|
John LaDuke, professor of biology, will present "A Tourist Experience in the Galapagos Through the Eyes of a Biologist" at noon Friday, Sept. 8, in 141 Starcher Hall. LaDuke has a research program in plant evolution, plant systematics and phylogeny reconstruction. His research is especially focused on plants in the family Malvaaceae (mallows).
He and his wife recently traveled to the Galapagos. The presentation will be an informal talk on tours to the Galapagos Islands, what you can see, what you cannot see, and how the system works. He stresses that the Galapagos is a phenomenal place and a "must see" for all people interested in biology. He will discuss and explore possibilities for future visits to the area with departmental students during the talk.
