Life and Death on the Wing


DeeAnn Reeder, Bucknell University bat biologist and researcher at the Smithsonian Institution will discuss the conservation, ecology, and physiology of the only mammals with true flight. This talk will highlight her work on White-nose syndrome recovery in North America, bats and Ebola in Sudan, and her discovery of the panda bat.

Reeders’s work on bat behavior and biology is helping to inform our understanding of emerging diseases. She is also committed to the conservation of mammals globally, and manages the Mammal Species of the World project.

The event will be held in the Cary Institute auditorium. Registration for general admission is required; seating is first come, first served. Registration does not guarantee a seat inside the auditorium.
