18th Annual Grant Lecture: Why aren’t there any marsupial whales?

Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: FREE
Ticketing: Open

Reproductive strategies vary wildly across vertebrates. Some species lay eggs, while other bear live young; some have larval stages with and undergo extensive changes before adult-hood, while others develop directly into forms similar to their parents. Young animals can be independent right from birth, whilst others, like us, can rely on lengthy parental care. Dr. Anjali Goswami will present her research on the evolutionary consequences of these different strategies focusing on marsupials using data drawn from broad sources such as long extinct museum fossils as well as developing embryos.

Following the lecture will be a free wine reception and a private view of the Museum.
