Social distancing in the animal kingdom

Friday, May 1st at 1pm ET

Join us for a conversation with Julia Buck, Assistant Professor of Biology at University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and Dana Hawley, Professor of Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech. They’ll be leading a discussion on what we can learn from behaviors akin to social distancing in nature. They wrote a recent short popular science piece on this topic and also recommend that attendees read a review paper* by Valerie Curtis on this topic entitled “Infection-avoidance behavior in humans and other animals.”
