Club EvMed: Social distancing in the animal kingdom
Join us for a conversation with Julia Buck, Assistant Professor of Biology at University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and Dana Hawley, Professor of Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech. They’ll be leading a discussion on what we can learn from behaviors akin to social distancing in nature. They wrote a recent short popular science piece on this topic (https://theconversation.com/social-distancing-works-just-ask-lobsters-ants-and-vampire-bats-135383) and also recommend that attendees read a review paper by Valerie Curtis on this topic entitled "Infection-avoidance behavior in humans and other animals" (http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.it.2014.08.006).

*Note: If you do not have access to this paper, please email Meredith Spence Beaulieu (meredith.spence.beaulieu@duke.edu) for assistance.
