Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

When Science Bites Back! New York Academy of Sciences Symposium

Posted on Apr 21, 2014 5:47:00 PM


Symposium - New York, United States

From the pets we love to the rats we hate—the human condition is closely intertwined with animals. But while we relax at home with our pets, dedicated scientists are entering the not-always furry fray in order to learn more about how animals help shape our world.In this event, a panel of researchers with expertise in the structure of animal societies and their survival strategies in extreme conditions will bring you tales from the field. And unlike the internet, it's not all baby pandas and elephants making friends with puppies. These animal experts will discuss the real story of studying dogs, dolphins, elephants and many others. And in the process we'll go from your backyard to the aquarium to some of the most extreme environments in the world.
