Title:Science Chat - Tyler Corey - ARACHNIDS & EVOLUTION

Biologist Tyler Corey studies how animals avoid being eaten. He does this by looking at spiders. For us to really understand how not to be eaten, Tyler says we need to learn to see through the eyes of a predator. Maybe even through 8 eyes! How does this advance our understanding of ecology, evolutionary biology, and animal behavior? Join us to ask him yourself! Tyler will also answer questions about his path to become a scientist and his future career goals. This Science Chat! will be held in Tyler’s UNL lab, which is teeming with spiders.
