Aliens v Predators: anti-predator responses of invasive frogs to novel predators
Free public lecture "Aliens vs Predators: anti-predator responses of invasive frogs to novel predators”, delivered by Dr Natasha Kruger
WHEN: Monday 27 February 2023, from 7pm
WHERE: Arena Theatre
Join us on Monday 27 February 2023 for the first lecture in the RIF4-funded Biosciences Public Lecture Series of the year. The Bioscience Public Lectures are a series of public engagement lectures that are open to all and will be showcasing bioscience research ongoing at the University of Wolverhampton.
This upcoming lecture titled "Aliens vs Predators: anti-predator responses of invasive frogs to novel predators” will be delivered by Dr Natasha Kruger. This seminar will explore the anti-predator strategies of invasive amphibians. When introduced in a new environment, amphibians can face a range of novel predators with whom they share no evolutionary history. How they cope with these predators may determine whether they become invasive or not. This study explores the anti-predator strategies of a successful amphibian invader especially during its most vulnerable stage (the tadpole), to determine whether this contributes to its invasion success.
This event is free for all to attend and will be hosted at the Arena Theatre, Wulfruna Street, WV1 1SE.
Free catering will also be provided, including seasonal canapes and refreshments from 7 pm with the seminar beginning promptly at 7.30 pm.
Whilst entry to the lectures is free, there is a maximum capacity of the venue. Therefore if you wish to attend we encourage you to book a ticket as if we reach capacity we will not allow entry to those who have not pre-registered.
