Our speaker will be Erica Bree Rosenblum, PhD
Shaping the tree of life: Speciation and extinction on a changing planet

Dr.xEricaxBree Rosenblum is currently an Associate Professor of Global Change Biology at UC Berkeley. She received her B.A. from Brown University and her PhD from UC Berkeley. Bree is interested in how new species form and why species are being lost at such an alarming rate in our contemporary world. Her research crosses scales from genes to ecosystems, and takes her from the White Sands desert in New Mexico where new lizard species are forming, to rainforests in South America where amphibians are threatened with extinction. Bree’s work has been recognized by numerous awards and has been featured in the New York Times, the Discovery Channel and numerous textbooks. Bree also loves to share her inspiration for studying life on our planet and runs regular outreach events for students of all ages.

We close the event with conversation and refreshments,
including our well-known Charles Darwin birthday cakes.
