Professor Zook To Lead Evolution Week Course at University of Lisbon
Professor Douglas Zook is invited to teach an intensive week course on evolution at the University of Lisbon in Portugal.
With support from the John Templeton Foundation, the Applied Evolutionary Epistemology Department of the University of Lisbon has organized an International Winter School on Evolution for the week of March 11-15, 2013. Professor Zook, who has taught Symbiosis for twenty-five years, will teach graduate students and post doctoral fellows in intensive sessions each day. Emphasis in the course will be on the dominating role symbiosis – close “cooperative” partnerships between different life forms in nature – plays in evolution.
Professor Zook joins other distinguished scientists such as William Martin of Heinrich Heine University, Germany and Michael Arnold of the University of Georgia. These scientists will be offering related courses during the week as well.
During his time at the University of Lisbon, Professor Zook will also participate in a panel discussion on evolution geared for the public and high school students of Lisbon.
