Dr. Jeff Podos

Title: Extreme evolution: Taking traits to their limit

Get egg-cited for another great Life Science Café! What happens when you need one beak shape to eat, but another shape to sing? How do extreme traits, like super loud bird calls, arise? Come find out as we talk with Dr. Jeff Podos about his work on ecology and evolution in birds.

Dr. Podos is a very exciting speaker that we had once before on Life Science Cafe. In fact Dr. Podos was our very first speaker ever over 10 years ago! He returned to give us an update on how his reasearch has changed over the years and tell us what is new in the weird world of evolution.

Missed our cafe? No problem! Here is a recording of the event:

As an extra fun bonus here is a link to the very first cafe!
