The Floral Archive: Climate, Empire, and the Problem of Scale

6:00pm

Location: 

Barker Center, Room 133

Among all the sophisticated new tools introduced in the nineteenth century for scaling the climate—for understanding the weather of the here-and-now in relation to large-scale, long-term processes—none proved quite as effective as nature’s own climatic indicators: plants. The achievement of botanist Anton Kerner von Marilaun (1831-1898) was to grasp that radical climatic shifts might be a part of the Earth’s future as well as its past, and to offer his contemporaries, scientist and non-scientist alike, the tools to imagine how familiar living things might react to a more or less radical...

Becoming Invisible in the Ocean: The Story of a Hawaiian Squid

6:00pm

Location: 

Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA

Until recently, biologists considered bacteria to be pathogens that negatively affected the health of humans and other animals. Over the last decade, however, scientists have discovered
that most animals live with bacteria in mutually beneficial relationships. Using the Hawaiian bobtail squid and its bioluminescent bacterial partner as a model, Margaret McFall- Ngai will address how animals select their bacteria—sometimes thousands of species—and how they maintain “diplomatic relations” with these microbial organisms.
