The journey through six centuries will be led by experts on the styles and techniques used in the creation of figurative sculpture.
Graduate students, both within and outside McGill, are invited to participate and present research projects on a variety of interdisciplinary scientific themes. This symposium is a collaborative effort of McGill graduate science students and represents an unsurpassed opportunity to exchange ideas with contemporary researchers from different scientific backgrounds, improve communication skills, give and receive valuable feedback on research efforts and presentation formats, and develop professional contacts with researchers and industry personnel.
Dr. David M. Bird, Avian Science and Conservation Centre, McGill, will take you on a humorous "bird's eye view" of the seemingly indecent world of avian reproduction involving the Mile-High Club, incest, homosexuality, sex changes, divorce and infidelity.
