Primates and Snakes, 75 Million Years of Deadly Dialogue?

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 @ 12:30 am - 2:00 am

Speaker: Harry W. Greene, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Cornell University

Description: Come hear the fascinating story of how snakes and primates have influenced one another’s evolution for millions of years. Dr. Harry Greene explores the theory that snakes have influenced the evolution of primate neurobiology, vision, and fear, beginning as early as 75 million years ago with constricting predators and 50 million years ago with venomous adversaries. These long-term, evolutionary relationships among snakes and primates both challenge and inspire efforts to conserve snakes.
