NSU Science & Technology Seminar Series continues Oct. 7

(Tahlequah, Okla.)-- Dr. Cameron Siler from the University of Oklahoma’s Department of Biology will be the second speaker for Northeastern State University’s Science and Technology Seminar Series on Wednesday, Oct. 7.

He will be presenting his lecture “Endangered Geckos and Limbless Lizards: Integrative Studies of Evolutionary Diversifications in an Island Archipelago System.”

Through his presentation, he plans to explain his program’s approach to understanding biodiversity, including investigating the evolution of morphology and body-form, patterns of diversification, cryptic diversity, speciation in island archipelago systems and emerging infectious amphibian diseases through research focused on genetic patterns. 

Siler's research interests are driven largely by a theme that researchers for generations have been captivated by—how and why species evolve.

The Science & Technology Seminar Series is arranged by Dr. John de Banzie, professor of biology at NSU. There is no charge for the seminars and they are open to all who wish to attend.

The seminar is in the Science building, Room 160 at 3 p.m. on NSU’s Tahlequah campus. For more information contact de Banzie at 918-444-3828 or
