What Can Evolutionary Biology Tell Us About the Origin and Spread of Human Agriculture?

December 10 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

St. Louis County Library - Zoom

Featured Speaker: Carlos Botero, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biology, Department of Biology, Washington University in St. Louis

Modern humans existed for at least two thousand years as hunter-gatherers before developing agriculture around 12,000 years ago. Biologist Carlos Botero uses the tools of evolutionary biology to test fundamental ideas related to why this transformative innovation originated where it did and spread so quickly around the world.

Featured Cafe Presenter: Ram Dixit, Ph.D., Professor of Biology and Program Director, Plant and Microobial Sciences, Department of Biology, Washington University in St. Louis; Principal Investigator, Working Group 2, Co-Leader, Center for Engineering MechanoBiology, National Science Foundation

Unlike human-made structures, biological structures are created without an underlying template or blueprint. Instead, these structures arise dynamically through a process called self-organization in which higher-level patterns emerge from interactions between lower-level components. Use computer modeling in this interactive virtual Teen Science Cafe to explore what self-organization means and how it applies to biological systems.
