Southport College Biology Week Guest Speaker Dr Tom Price October 25th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments Southport College Biology Week Guest Speaker Dr Tom Price This year’s Special Guest Speaker for National Biology Week was Dr Tom Price from The University of Liverpool who gave our students a lecture on ‘The Battle of the Sexes.’ This extremely popular event saw over 60 Biology students pack into the lecture theatre to hear Tom talk about the evolutionary conflict between the sexes. He discussed how males evolve to manipulate females and females evolve counter-adaptations. Tom illustrated his talk with examples including the traumatic insemination of bed bugs, chlamydia in koalas, the nuptial gift giving of dance flies, and the bizarre nuptial dance of the leopard slug. The students found the talk on evolution fascinating and all agreed that Tom had been an excellent addition to Biology week at KGV. Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
