The Zuk lab has a sustained commitment to making evolutionary biology accessible to non-traditional science audiences through public outreach. Here's what we've been up to lately.

The Zuk Lab at the annual meeting of the Animal Behavior Society 2016

Graduate student Becky Ehrlich and honorary lab member Virginia Heinen participated in an outreach fair at the University of Missouri this summer. In an interactive display, they spoke to several hundred visitors about our lab's work in evolutionary biology and what the crickets are teaching us about rapid evolution. Art (below) by Virginia Heinen tells the story of Teleogryllus oceanicus in Hawaii.
