Each night will feature informal docent tours of the world famous collection of Blaschka 'Glass Flowers', as well as a special gallery talk in the Museum’s new EVOLUTION exhibition led by a Harvard graduate student. July 16 “Life’s a Niche” – Gallery talk by Luke Mahler, graduate student in Evolutionary Biology at Harvard Gallery talks at 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm One of the most amazing aspects of biodiversity is that no two species are alike - each has carved out its own unique niche. We’ll explore the museum’s EVOLUTION and Language of Color exhibits with a special focus on one of the most ecologically diverse vertebrates, the Anolis lizards of the Caribbean. These creatures can tell us about biodiversity at all levels—from rainforest plants to the dinosaurs of Earth's past.
