Integrative and comparative biologists to discuss latest research
Date:12/28/2012

ath. Researchers are using cutting edge techniques and amazing high speed video footage to investigate how predators and prey process sensory information and translate it into action. Although we know a lot about how many predators and prey interact to cause populations to rise and fall, we don't know very much about how two animal opponents sense each other and react, leading to some animals getting eaten and some escaping. Through the use of cutting-edge techniques, neurobiologists, ecologists, and biomechanics researchers have recently made this a tractable area of research. The goal of this symposium is to highlight new findings that are advancing our understanding of sensing and movement in predator-prey interactions, an exciting new frontier of cross-disciplinary research.

Vertebrate Land Invasions: Past, Present, and Future

How did the first fishes start to climb out of the ocean and live on land? These early land animals, the ancestors of all modern vertebrates on land, faced numerous challenges, including moving and supporting themselves, breathing, eating, sensing, and not drying out. Although we can't study the ancients directly, there are modern species of fish and amphibians that come out on land and face many of the same challenges as the early pioneers did. These modern animals may help us to understand the early transition to land. The symposium brings together a diverse array of scientists from different fields such as paleontology, physiology, behavior, biomechanics, and robotics, to highlight their research in topics related to vertebrate land invasions.

Phenotypic Plasticity and the Evolution of Gender Roles

In many animals, gender roles are much more fluid than they are in humans. Some animals start off male and later become female, or the other way around; others can be male and female simultaneously. This is an example of phenotypic plasticity, the remarkable ability of some organisms to radi
