Colloquium: Hertel on the diversity of hummingbirds on Chilean islands

The Biology Colloquium seminar series resumes for the fall semester this week with a talk by CSUN Professor of Biology Fritz Hertel. Dr. Hertel studies functional morphology in birds and mammals, and how morphological diversity structures communities of birds and mammals. His talk will be titled "Ecomorphology of Island Hummingbirds from Chile".

Because CSUN has suspended large in-person meetings to help slow the transmission of the novel coronavirus, this week’s Colloquium will be presented by videoconference on the Zoom service. You can watch the presentation starting at the usual time for colloquium seminars, Friday at 2pm, via this meeting link: https://csun.zoom.us/j/145988700. (A password sent to Biology Department email lists is required. Following the link may prompt the installation of the Zoom app in order to display video.)
