The Durham District School Board STEMTalks speaker series will be presenting the following talks:
The Biology of Camel Spiders and Arachnid Field Adventures!
Solifuges, or camel spiders, are extremely poorly understood creatures. Myths and misconceptions concerning this order of arachnids are numerous. This talk will outline basic solifuge biology and behavior, and will include some anecdotes surrounding working with arachnids both in the lab and during fieldwork.
Forensic Entomology: How Insects Can Help Solve Crimes
Insects are just one of many evidence types that can be used to solve a crime. Their most common application to crime scene investigation is in the determination of time since death. This talk aims to cover the basics of their use in estimating time since death and provide case examples for a variety of insect applications.
These talks will take place on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 from 7:00-8:00PM in room 1011 at the Durham District School Board office, 400 Taunton Road East, Whitby, Ontario.
