Kate Eisen (LMU website)

The Spring 2024 Biology Colloquium Series continues this Friday with a seminar by Kate Eisen, Assistant Professor of Biology at Loyola Marymount University. Dr. EIsen studies the evolution of plant-pollinator interactions, particularly they ways in which selection for pollinator attraction changes in communities of plants sharing pollinator species. Her talk, supported by the BEER Club, will be titled, “How do species interactions shape the evolution of flowers? A study of California native annual wildflowers in the genus Clarkia“.

Colloquium series seminars are held Fridays at 2pm in Chaparral Hall room 5122. Dr. Eisen will be available after the seminar to meet with students during a “Meet the Speaker” reception, with light refreshments, in Chaparral Hall 5201.
