Hear all about it at the Library!
Birds do it, bees do it--even pine trees do it. If you want to know
more, plan to attend Claire Williams' lecture, â€œSex and the Single
Pine Tree." Williams, on the faculty of Dukeâ€™s Department of
Biology, promises to change the way you look at a pine tree. In her
talk she will take the audience on a pictorial journey through
geological time, connecting unusual reproductive characteristics in
modern conifers to pollination mechanisms in ancient seed plants.
Professor Williams' lecture is part of the Engaging Faculty Series,
which is sponsored by the Friends of the Duke University Libraries.
Tuesday, 24 January 2006, 4:30pm, Perkins Library Rare Book Room.
The program is open to everyone.
