The Public is cordially invited to attend a UMD Darwin Day public lecture presented by Professor Bruce Lieberman, Department of Geology Senior Curator, Division of Invertebrate Paleontology, Natural History Museum and Biodiversity Research Center at the University of Kansas, on February 12, at 3:15 p.m. in the UMD Life Science Building room 175. The title of Dr. Lieberman's presentation will be "Macroevolution and Paleontology: Expanding Darwinism."

Cake and Coffee will be served at 3 p.m. before the lecture.

The UMD Darwin Day lecture is set to celebrate what would have been Charles Darwin's 201st birthday. Professor Lieberman's research involves using fossil records to study macroevolutionary patterns and processes. A central part of his research involves reconstructing phylogenetic patterns in arthropods, especially trilobites.

Sponsors for the Darwin Day event are the UMD Department of Geological Science, the UMD Department of Biology, Sigma Xi Scientific Research Society (UMD Chapter) and the UMD Swenson College of Science and Engineering.
