Science Under the Stars: Poisons, death, and survival in the animal kingdom
Thursday, April 14, 2016, 08:00pm - 09:00pm

Becca Tarvin (Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior Graduate Program)

"Poisons, death, and survival in the animal kingdom"

"Have you ever wondered why poisonous animals don’t poison themselves? Or what might eat something that seems deadly? Come learn about how animal chemical defenses work, and why they affect some but not all animals."

Science Under the Stars is a free, monthly public outreach lecture series founded and organized by graduate students in the Department of Integrative Biology at The University of Texas at Austin. Events are held at 8:00pm outdoors at Brackenridge Field Laboratory, 2907 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703 during the Fall and Spring academic semesters. In the case of inclement weather, lectures are held indoors. Arrive early for refreshments and fun activities for kids of all ages! Guided tours of the field lab are available (wear sturdy shoes and bring water)!
