Montreal Field Naturalists' Club: Secrets of the ant wing


Leacock Building 855 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC, H3A 2T7, CA
Lecture/slide show by Dr. Ehab Abouheif, Biology, McGill. Ants are remarkable in that depending only on environmental cues, such as food and temperature, an ant queen will lay an egg that develops into a winged queen or a wingless worker. Only a small number of genes control the embryonic development of very diverse animal types. Dr. Abouheif studies evolutionary processes in ants and fish. How these genes evolve and react to the environment is contributing to cancer research. Free, everyone welcome
