Being Nearly Human

When: Mon., Sept. 16, 7 p.m. 2013

NYU Professor Timothy Bromage’s lecture will combine two topics: “What Cells Will Do For Global Climate Change” and “Being Nearly Human.” The presentation will combine discussions of how, by processes of natural selection, most African mammals developed larger bones and teeth to cope with a changing vegetation and how the development of teeth and the chronological age at which they erupt in the mouth are coordinated to meet the metabolic requirements of increasing size and activity during growth and maturation.The lecture will be held at the SunTrust Theater
