Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
The passenger pigeon: Why it went extinct, and can we resurrect it?
Date: Tuesday, January 20th
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Stan Temple, Nelson Institute
Abstract: The passenger pigeon declined from billions to none in the span of 50 years. Stan Temple analyses how this incredible collapse could have happened. And now, 100 years after the species' extinction, advances in biotechnology have led to visions of resurrecting the species. Could we? Should we?
