Rice University’s campus is home to a rich diversity of life. The Lynn R. Lowrey Arboretum contains more than 100 species of trees and woody plants, providing a green oasis for many species of animals. Each year during the spring and fall, hundreds of migrating birds can be seen on campus as they make their way to and from their winter homes. Cin-Ty Lee is a geologist with a special emphasis on igneous and metamorphic petrology. His current research interests are focused on understanding the origin and evolution of continents, ore deposits, and long-term climate evolution. He spends much of his spare time looking for birds at Rice and different parts of the world. He has published numerous bird-related papers and teaches an undergraduate Field Bird Biology course at Rice. Scott Solomon is a Lecturer and Laboratory Coordinator in Rice's Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and a Resident Associate at Baker College. For his graduate research he examined the evolutionary basis of biodiversity in the Amazon Basin. He teaches introductory biology, scientific communication, and labs on biological diversity and field biology. This event is free and open to the public. Free parking available in the garage behind the Black Lab.
