Birds of Paradise: Exploring a Wonder of the World
Lecture and booksigning with Tim Laman
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 6:00 pm
The Birds of Paradise are one of Earth’s most exceptional and yet little-known treasures. National Geographic photojournalist Tim Laman, (along with collaborator Ed Scholes), has now amassed the first modern collection of these birds--recorded in stunning photographs, videos, and audio. In 2011, Laman completed the mission to photograph all 39 species of this incredibly diverse group in the wild, undertaking 18 expeditions to 51 different field sites across the New Guinea region. Laman will discuss these exciting scientific discoveries and images and the technologies he used. Free and open to the public, Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street. Free parking in the 52 Oxford Street garage.
