Rob Dunn - 'Never Home Alone: From Microbes to Millipedes, Camel Crickets, and Honeybees, the Natural History of Where We Live' (Offsite Event)

Join Dunn and fellow scientists for a gala event, a kind of public science party at the Hunt Library at NCSU.  Dunn's book tells the big story of the tens of thousands of species discovered in homes. After the talk, more than fifty scientists who have been involved in the work will report on their own pieces of the big picture. Tickets are free but must be reserved on Eventbrite.
This event will be supported by NCSU Libraries and the NCSU Department of Applied Ecology and Quail Ridge Books.
