if I lived in Hawkes Bay I'd be keen to attend this Royal Society public lecture, & I'll certainly be watching the video, which will be available after. It looks like being of interest & value to senior Biology teachers.

The ninth lecture in the 10X10 series

Why did the pigeon cross the road?

Dr Claire Postlethwaite

Napier | 7.30 Tuesday 19 November | Hawke's Bay Holt Planetarium | View Livestream

In this lecture, Dr Claire Postlethwaite  (University of Auckland) will talk about using mathematical models to understand animal behaviour, using examples from homing pigeons,  possums, bees and electric fish.
