Food for Thought w/ Prof. Pyron

Join us for the first Food for Thought of the semester on Friday, September 8th from 12 to 1PM in the Club Room (714 21st Street NW). Several times a semester, Food for Thought lunches give us the opportunity to hear a casual talk from a faculty member about their research over lunch.

This month, Professor Alex Pyron from the GW Biology Department will be giving a talk titled “Global Biodiversity and Extinction Risk in Reptiles and Amphibians.” That’s right, REPTILES. He’ll discuss his work cataloging the diversity of species worldwide, and the current threats facing this species’ richness. Professor Pyron is also one of our Faculty Fellows for the 2017-2018 academic year.
