UW Science Now: Andrea Watts: English Holly—Welcome Guest or Escape Artist? AND Katrina Claw: A Sperm’s Perilous Journey to the Center of the Egg

Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street. $5.

Science

Two graduate candidates from the UW give talks on their brand-new research. First, Andrea Watts, of the UW School of Forest Resources, presents new research that helps predict conditions for English Holly—a species regional forest managers consider invasive, but which has a more complicated pedigree. Next, Katrina Claw gives an overview of sperm-egg interaction and evolution focused on a sperm’s arduous journey around barriers put up by the egg. How has this process remained constant across a huge variety of species? Presented by Engage: The Science Speaker Series as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with the University of Washington, Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.

Advance
tickets are $5 at Brown Paper Tickets or 800/838-3006 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm.
