Rebecca Safran, assistant professor at theUniversity of Colorado-Boulder, will present "The Role ofDivergent Sexual Selection in Speciation" on Monday, April 15 from 12:20 to1:20 p.m. in the Cox Science Center, Room 166. As a behavioral and evolutionary ecologist, Safran is fascinated by relationships among different scales of biological organization. Questions about individual variation (behavior, morphology, and physiology) and population patterns (social and genetic structure, population stability, species boundaries) are usually addressed in isolation from one another, but it is the relationship between these two levels that provides powerful predictive information about the causes and consequences of large scale patterns, such as the generation and loss of biodiversity.
