Science Night Live: Darwinian Valentines

Evolution is often called "survival of the fittest," but in reality, it is often “perpetuation of the sexiest." If natural selection was Charles Darwin’s greatest insight, sexual selection was his second greatest. Join Hofstra professors Dr. J. Bret Bennington (Department of Geology and Sustainability) and Dr. Russell Burke and Dr. Lisa Filippi (Department of Biology) for a fun look at why choosing a mate is one of the greatest forces driving evolution, and learn a little about how Darwin himself chose his mate.

Science Night Live is Hofstra University’s public lecture series that features exciting science research presented by some of the top scientists and lecturers in their fields. Science is important in our everyday lives, and these timely lectures are sure to inspire and challenge us in unexpected ways.
