Quiet as a mouse? Think again. Brett Pasch explores the broad diversity of acoustic signals produced by mice. From a mouse that sang over the airwaves of NBC studios in 1936 to neotropical singing mice, the current rock stars of the rodent world, discover the context and consequences of vocal communication in animals with underappreciated voices. Arrive early for refreshments and fun activities for kids of all ages.
Science Under the Stars is a free monthly public outreach lecture series founded and organized by graduate students in the Section of Integrative Biology at The University of Texas at Austin. Our goals are to host fun, informal science outreach events for Austin citizens of all ages, and give scientists a venue to share their work with the general public. In case of inclement weather, lecture held indoors.
