Darwin Day 2014: Alien Invasions - Evolution of Real Life Bodysnatchers
The 2014 Darwin Day will explore the evolution of parasites - organisms that have evolved to invade other organisms' bodies. The events include an exploration of parasites in the movies, three invited speakers, known for their exciting science and ability to engage the public, and a wide array of family-friendly interactive booths presented by members of the UW-Madison science community.
February 6-8, 2014 (Discovery Building and Union South; UW-Madison)
