Bumblebees, Birds and Genius Flies: How Animals Learn to Make Choices
Aimee Dunlap, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biology, Department of Biology, University of Missouri St. Louis
Wednesday, November 19, 2014
7:30-9 p.m. in The Living World at Saint Louis Zoo
How do animals track changes in their environment? When should animals learn about some things better than others, and when should they not learn at all? Should some things be forgotten more quickly? In this fascinating look at how animals learn, University of Missouri Biology Professor, Aimee Dunlap, explores how we are trying to answer these questions by testing how bumblebees and birds make choices and how animals like flies evolve experimentally in the lab.
