    The Biology and Evolution of Mollusks

    From tiny barnacles to the giant clam (Tridacna gigas), mollusks are the most diverse and widely distributed family of marine invertebrates. Professor Gonzalo Giribet, Curator of Invertebrate Zoology at Harvard’s MCZ, will discuss how scientists are decoding the Mollusca genetic family tree to learn how they’ve adapted, survived, and thrived since the pre-Cambrian era, and to explore the potential benefits of mollusks from medicine to human health, and other fields.

    Free parking available in the 52 Oxford Street garage.

    Followed by an exhibition preview and reception for members. Space is limited. Pre-registration required. RSVP to members@hmnh.harvard.edu or 617.496.6972.
