ORVALLIS - A symposium on "The Evidence for Evolution" will be held at Oregon State University on Friday, Nov. 3, bringing to the university several leading researchers from across the nation.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the LaSells Stewart Center on the OSU campus. It is sponsored by the OSU College of Science through the Thomas T. Sugihara Young Faculty Award, and the Dr. Bonnie C. Templeton Fund in the OSU Department of Botany and Plant Pathology.
"Although thousands of scientific investigations have presented results consistent with the theory of organismal evolution, clearly these findings are not well-known to the general public," said Aaron Liston, director of the OSU Herbarium. "This symposium will highlight exemplary studies of evolution presented by three distinguished plant scientists."
