Wabash Events Calendar

November 09, 2021

All event times are Eastern Time Zone unless otherwise specified.

Wabash has spent the summer taking appropriate measures to protect our campus community's health, and yet we cannot predict what public health conditions might be two weeks or two months from now. To that end, we expect our alumni, parents, and guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to coming to campus for events and activities. (If you cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, please let us know and we will try to make the appropriate arrangements to protect your health.)
Face masks are required for all unvaccinated persons while indoors on the Wabash campus. Face masks are also required when 50 or more people are gathered indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

Oaks and Evolutionary Success (Sork): Baxter Hall 101 Lovell Lecture Room, 12:00PM - 1:00PM

Oaks: An Evolutionary Success Story Now in Jeopardy

Join ΦBK Visiting Scholar Dr Victoria Sork, Distinguished Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at UCLA, for an exploration of the evolutionary history of oaks.  Sandwiches served at 11:45.                                                

Oaks are the most abundant and diverse tree taxa in North American forests. They evolved in the warm paleo-arctic over 50 million years ago and migrated southward as the planet cooled, diversifying into hundreds of species across North America, Asia, and Europe.  This talk will discuss the evolutionary history of oaks, describe some genomic features of oaks that have facilitated their success, and finish with evidence that oaks are in jeopardy due to global warming and how we might manage tree populations to help them survive.

Victoria Sork is an accomplished leader, a renowned evolutionary and conservation biologist, a passionate teacher, a dedicated mentor, and a respected administrator. Professor Sor
