Join us as Australian biologist Steve Simpson from University of Sydney presents his lecture, Law of the Locusts: What Insect Swarms Teach Us about Cannibalism, Aging, and Human Obesity. Professor Simpson will discuss how locust swarms can be one of the most destructive plagues to mankind, but also offer important new insights into the causes of human obesity, the aging process, and the complexities of crowd behavior.
The lecture starts at 7:00 PM, and is free and open to the public. We will meet outside the lecture hall a half hour beforehand, then go in and get seats before things get started. If you miss the group, just go on in and we'll reconvene outside afterwards before heading out afterwards for food, refreshments, and discussion.
As usual, the Red Line is your best bet for transportation. If you prefer to drive, there is free parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
Hope to see you there :)
