Teen Science Cafe: Humans and Stream Invertebrates

  • Friday, January 06, 2023
  • 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Connections in Form, Function and Adaptations

If you open any biology textbook, one of the first concepts that you will encounter is the connection between form and function. Form (or structure) and function (or physiology) are linked in all life forms. Organisms are adapted to their environments in numerous ways, including through their structure and physiology. This presentation will explore a few of the relationships among form, function and adaptation in both humans and stream invertebrates.
