How to Survive in Antarctica: Lessons from an Insect - Buckeye Smart Program - December 5 from 11:30am to 1:00 pm, Columbus, Ohio
Antarctica is among Earth’s most inhospitable environments, but one insect, a wingless midge (Belgica antarctica), thrives here. It survives not only low temperatures, but also desiccation, UV radiation, and extremes of salinity and pH.  Join David Denlinger, PhD, Ohio State distinguished professor emeritus, for a presentation highlighting what he has discovered about this extraordinary insect. Every Antarctic summer, members of his lab travel to the Palmer Station to tease answers from the midge about its adaptations for living in this hostile environment.

This program is offered by the OSU Alumni Association for OSU alumni and their guests.  The cost is $10 and includes lunch.  Register here.
