The interconnected web of life: what nature can teach us about cooperation a presentation by Laura Boggess, Instructor of Biology and Environmental Science
Cooperation is everywhere in nature. From the tiny mitochondria providing energy to our cells, to the giant underground networks of fungi that allow trees to communicate, natural systems mirror the ways we rely on and are connected to each other. In this seminar, we’ll explore the contributions of three women scientists who have changed the way we see relationships in nature and discuss the implications of their work on human relationships and the value of diversity.
This event is part of the “Making Connections” Series. Every Monday at 4:00 pm via Zoom, students and other members of the MHU community will gather to hear experts talk about a fascinating aspect of their research and its applications to our daily lives. This series, guided by the principle that learning should not stop once class is over, wants to give participants the opportunity to think about big ideas in a safe, supporting environment that nurtures personal growth in the spirit of a liberal arts education.
