Time: 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
On Saturday, June 23, 2018, Dr. Donald Dearborn of Bates College will present on Genetics and Ecology of Diseases in Wild Birds. Bringing in some of his own research on the genetics of the avian immune system from Kent Island, he’ll discuss diseases that bird banders frequently encounter, such as pox, and Mycoplasmal conjunctivitis. It promises to be a perfectly balanced talk in terms of the complexity and depth given this topic. This program takes place in Moore Auditorium on the Schoodic Institute campus and is free and open to the public. No registration required.
