New self-paced course: Learn How to Identify Bird Songs, Click to Learn More

Dr. Rosemary Grant has been an inspiration to generations of students and scientists in the field of evolution. Her work (along with husband Peter) on the finches of the Galapagos Islands provided one of the first and clearest demonstrations of natural selection occurring in real time. This talk is the first Paul C. Mundinger Distinguished Lecture, established in honor of the late Paul Mundinger, who received his Ph.D. in Evolutionary Biology from Cornell. His research also focused on hybridization in finches. Read a Q&A with Rosemary Grant and find out more about the Mundinger Distinguished Lectureship.

The talk took place on March 12, 2018 in Cornell University’s Call Auditorium, Kennedy Hall. If you enjoyed this talk, check out our list of Monday Night Seminar future speakers.
