Join us as Dr. Robert Page, ASU University Provost and Foundation Chair of Life Sciences, discusses "The Spirit of the Hive: How Complex Social Behavior Evolves." The seminar will be held at ASU's Polytechnic campus on Wed., Nov 12 at 3 p.m. in the Student Union, Cooley Ballroom B (with refreshments available at 2:45). The seminar is free and open to the public. Among the nation's distinguished scientists, Page served as chair of entomology at the University of California, Davis, before joining the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at ASU in 2004. His background is in behavior and population genetics and his current research is focused on the evolution of complex social behavior. Using the honeybee as a model, Dr. Page has dissected their complex foraging division of labor at all levels of biological organization, from gene networks to complex social interactions. Provost Page's presentation is the third in the 2014 Science and Mathematics Seminars, organized by ASU's College of Letters and Sciences. The seminar series features invited speakers who share their current pursuits in research and education in the areas of biology, physics, chemistry, and mathematics.
