Darwin Lecture 9/29: Learn about the evolution of life on land with paleontologist Dale Russell

Where: North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh
When: September 29, 2009, 6:30pm

The Darwin Lecture Series Continues! On Tuesday, September 29, paleontologist Dale Russell presents a talk based on his new book "Islands in the Cosmos: The Evolution of Life on Land," which follows evolution from its origins to the present day. Russell traces a path from the dawn of the universe to speculations about our future on this planet. It remains to be seen, he notes, whether the human form can survive the dynamic processes that brought it into existence.

The talk begins at 6:30 p.m. at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh. This lecture is free of charge and seating is on a first come, first served basis. Doors to the Museum and auditorium will open at 6 p.m. Please RSVP to museum.reservations@ncmail.net.
