Science Sundays: Sean B. Carroll, The Serengeti Rules: The Quest to Discover How Nature Works & Why It Matters

Reception following the lecture in the Ohio Union Ohio Staters Traditions Room (4-5 p.m.)

Sean B. Carroll, professor of molecular biology and genetics, University of Wisconsin, lectures on “The Serengeti Rules: The Quest to Discover How Nature Works & Why It Matters.”

Nature regulates everything — whether it’s the molecules in our bloodstream or lions on an African savanna. Revolutionary discoveries like The Serengeti Rules, are illuminating this regulation. Carroll discusses ecological rules that control numbers and kinds of animals and plants everywhere that are being applied to restore some of the planet’s greatest wildernesses.
