'The Monkey's Voyage' Author on Campus

October 20, 2014

Alan de Queiroz, author of "The Monkey's Voyage: How Improbable Journeys Shaped the History of Life," presents "A World Shaped by Monkeys: Rafting Monkeys and the Nature of Evolutionary History," at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29, in Room 1506 of Steven G. Mihaylo Hall. De Queiroz, a faculty member at University of Nevada, Reno's Department of Biology, contends that implausible ocean journeys, including those believed to have been taken across the Atlantic by Eocene-era monkeys, could provide the most convincing illustrations of evolutionary history's fortuitous nature.

The event is sponsored by the departments of Anthropology, Biological Science, Geography, Geological Sciences and Liberal Studies; the Liberal Studies Student Association; the John D. Cooper Archaeological and Paleontological Center; and the Center for the History and Philosophy of Science, Technology and Medicine.
