Birds and DNA: Biodiversity and Mountain Islands

Date: 06/29/2013 - 06/29/2014

Time: All Day Event

Location: Bell Museum of Natural History

Cost: Free with museum admission


Most of the forests of the Caucasus Mountains are being cut and their birds are at risk. These forest birds look look similar to other species found in Europe, but are they really the same? A team of researchers from the University of Minnesota, along with Russian colleagues, are turning to DNA to answer that important question. If they are distinct populations, what conservation efforts need to happen to protect the birds of the Caucasus Mountains? Dive into the world of DNA in this new exhibit, and discover the mysteries of hidden biodiversity!
