Lecture: Passenger Pigeons, Back from Extinction?

Saturday, Jun 15, 2013 3:00p

Passenger pigeons were once the most common birds in North America, but by 1914 they were extinct. What if they could be brought back from extinction? How could it be done? How might they live again?
Find out first-hand from the researcher whose work on these questions has attracted recent national attention. Ben Novak will discuss misconceptions of passenger pigeon natural history. And he will discuss the status of his current research, sequencing DNA from museum specimens.
