University Forum Lecture: Chasing ButterfliesWhen: Sep. 25, 2013, 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Campus Location: Marjorie Barrick Museum / Harry Reid Center
Office/Remote Location: Auditorium
Please join the College of Liberal Arts for the University Forum Lecture "Chasing Butterflies: Endemic Butterflies of the Spring Mountain Range, Clark County, Nevada," a talk by Daniel Thompson, professor, School of Life Sciences, UNLV and Paula Garrett, research scientist, Public Lands Institute, UNLV.
The Spring Mountain Range is considered a “sky island” due to its bio-geographic isolation from other mountain ranges of similar elevation. The highest point of the range is Mount Charleston peak. Surrounded on all sides by the Mohave Desert, the Spring Mountains provide the only remaining refuge to a variety of endemic species. These include a number of rare butterflies existing nowhere else in the world. The impact of the Carpenter Canyon Fire (July, 2013) will also be discussed.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
