When does personality matter?
Jonathan Pruitt, a postdoctoral fellow with the Center for Population Biology, UC Davis Department of Evolution and Ecology, will speak on “From Individuals to Populations to Communities: When Does Personality Matter?” at the next UC Davis Department of Entomology seminar, set for Wednesday, Jan. 19.
His talk, open to the pubic, is from 12:10 to 1 p.m. in 1022 Life Sciences Addition (LSA), corner of Hutchison Drive and Kleiber Hall Drive.
