Join us for Thursday night’s “The Ecology and Evolution of our Wild Lives” event at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. The night will begin with a research presentation contest, featuring research posters and short videos telling the ecological and evolutionary story of species with which humans interact. During poster viewing, stands will be set up at the museum where you will be able to have your belly button sampled for bacteria.
Students, faculty and other researchers interested in entering the contest (several cash awards!), please visit here.
