The Life And Times Of A Sex Changing Fish With Tessa Solomon Lane

Whether you’re a human, dog, bird, fish, or insect, living in a social group has costs and benefits. The members of your social group can have a big impact on your biology and behavior, including how much you eat and exercise and whether you lead a healthy life. I will introduce you to the amazing biology of bluebanded gobies, a fish for which social context is so important that it can cause a female to become a male, and vice versa! Come learn about what these socially savvy fish can teach us! Science Under the Stars is a free public outreach lecture series in Austin, Texas. Activities start at 7:30pm outdoors and the talk starts at 8:00pm at Brackenridge Field Laboratory, 2907 Lake Austin Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703.
