Join us for the fifth Faculty Speaker Series event, celebrating the scholarly research and creative works of Wheaton’s faculty members.

Dr. Jessie Knowlton, Assistant Professor of Biology, will present a talk titled “Birds, bees, and humans: why we should care about all species.” Dr. Knowlton will talk about her research with Wheaton students on the impacts of environmental change on bird and bee communities in Ecuador. She will also explain why what happens to other species can make a big difference to humanity as well, and what we can learn from paying attention to the diversity of life on our planet.

Dr. Jani Benoit, Professor of Chemistry, will moderate the Q&A.

This hour-long talk and moderated Q&A will take place on Zoom. Pre-registration is required.
