Research by Professor Robert Dudley and postdoc Victor Ortega is featured in a segment on KQED Science about Hummingbirds in a wind tunnel.


Lindsey Dougherty’s love of the sea eventually led her to UC Berkeley, where she is now a graduate student focusing on one of the ocean’s more unusual critters: a clam that flashes in the deep.

This behavior earned it the nickname ‘disco clam,’ and Dougherty is working with UC Berkeley’s Roy Caldwell, professor of integrative biology, to explore how and why it flashes its mirrored lips.

Dr. Tyrone Hayes, an assistant professor of integrative biology at the University of California, Berkeley, will present "From Silent Spring to Silent Night: A Tale of Toads and Men." He will discuss the harmful impacts of chemical contaminants on amphibians and humans in Bowling Green State University's 2015 Jean Pasakarnis-Buchanan Lecture Tuesday 7 p.m. in 112 Life Sciences Building on campus.
