"Lifespans: From Minutes to Millennia"



March 17, 2017
Sierra College
Rocklin, CA
7:30 pm

The 2016-2017 lecture series of the Sierra College Natural History Museum continues Friday, March 17th with "Lifespans: From Minutes to Millennia", a presentation by Sierra College professors Shawna Martinez, Joe Medeiros, and Jennie Skillen. Join us Friday evening at 7:30pm for an illustrated tour through time - the way nature sees it. The presentation will be in Sewell Hall (room 111) on the Sierra College-Rocklin Campus.

Lifetimes can be measured from minutes to millennia - at least the way most people think. But what is a lifetime? While it is a straightforward concept for some organisms, for others it is far less clear how to measure the extent of a lifetime. How do processes such as cloning, fission, and long distance migration affect the way we define lifespans? Join Sierra College biologists in an illustrated tour through the lifespans of a variety of Earth's organisms, from bacteria and butterflies to quaking aspens and creosote bushes.

This presentation is part of the Sierra College Natural History Museum's 2016-2017 lecture series, and will be held on Friday, March 17 at 7:30 pm in Sewell Hall, room 111. Tickets are available at the door. Prices are General $5 / Students and Seniors $2 / Museum members free. All proceeds benefit the Sierra College Natural History Museum.

The Sierra College Rocklin Campus is located at 5100 Sierra College Blvd. in Rocklin. There is no charge for parking after 4pm on Friday. For more information, call the Sierra College Natural History Museum at 916-660-7926.
