India: An Amphibian Hotspot

Thursday, Apr 25, 2024, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Geological Lecture Hall
24 Oxford St.
Due to human activities, habitats across the world are changing or being destroyed. As a result, an increasing number of organisms are threatened or on the brink of extinction–even before being documented by scientists. Amphibians are particularly vulnerable to habitat changes, pollution, and drought, and species in this group are becoming extinct at alarming rates. In this talk, S. D. Biju discusses his thirty years of research on the frogs of India and Asia and highlights the key role scientists play in species conservation. 

After the lecture, visit the Harvard Museum of Natural History to see an exhibit of S. D. Biju’s frog photographs, and join ArtsThursdays—a free event featuring art-making activities and a cash bar. 

Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage. Presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture, in collaboration with the Harvard Radcliffe Institute.
