15 Jul (Tue): Wallace Lecture on "Sea star and sea cucumber reproduction enhancement strategies"

Did you know that different species of sea stars and sea cucumbers are able to reproduce in different ways when survival of their species is threatened? These marine animals protect their eggs and even self-divide when conventional reproduction is inadequate. If you are curious about their reproduction strategies, join us for an evening with Dr Peter Mark O’Loughlin, a world authority on sea stars and sea cucumbers, who will share unique ways these marine lives reproduce to ensure continuity of their species.
This talk is part of the Wallace Lecture Series brought to you by Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum (NUS), in collaboration with National Biodiversity Centre (NParks); and supported by Shell Singapore.

The Wallace Lecture Series was a series of important lectures delivered in the 1960s by well-known biologists in the then University of Malaya. These lectures stimulated discussion and encouraged the exploration of new ideas in systematics, ecology and natural heritage.

The talk is free but pre-registration is required at http://tinyurl.com/m25q6qr by 2 July.

Time: 7-8.30pm
Venue: Function Hall, Botany Centre Level 1, Singapore Botanic Gardens
