*Tuesday May 22nd @7PM*
*BBC Evening Presentation:*
*Climate, human effects, and the collapse of Caribbean bat biodiversity*
*BROOKLYN PUBLIC LIBRARY, CENTRAL BRANCH AT GRAND ARMY PLAZA*
Presenter: Angelo Soto-Centeno, professor of Evolutionary Biology at
Rutgers University – Newark and most recently a postdoctoral fellow at the
American Museum of Natural History.
Angelo was born in Puerto Rico, and since early childhood he experienced
island biodiversity first hand. His fascination with animals that can fly
led him on a path to study bats, a group of one the most misunderstood
mammals worldwide. Today, he travels the Caribbean islands searching and
documenting living and fossil species of bats to understand the causes that
led to changes in the biodiversity of these imperiled mammals.
