Adriana Darielle Mejía Briscoe to present James P. Holland Memorial Lecture
When: Monday, October 10, 2011, at 4:00 p.m.
Adriana Darielle Mejía Briscoe, associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of California, Irvine, will give the twelfth James P. Holland Memorial Lecture. Her talk is scheduled on Monday, October 10, 2011, at 4:00 p.m. in Myers Hall 130 on the IU Bloomington campus. The title of Briscoe's talk is "The Genetic Basis of Adaptation in the Color Vision Systems of Mimetic Butterflies."
The Briscoe lab conducts research at the nexus of natural selection, molecular evolution, comparative physiology, animal behavior, and ecology in butterflies. Her work examines how natural selection shapes color vision receptor proteins as well as the cascade of consequences for color vision, wing color, and butterfly interactions with predators, mates, and host plants.

The James P. Holland Memorial Lecture Series was created in 2000 to honor the memory of one of the most beloved faculty members on the Bloomington campus, Professor James Holland (1934-1998). Holland had a passion for teaching that earned him virtually every teaching award offered on campus, including the President's Award for Distinguished Teaching. The lecture series honors his legacy and is designed to bring awareness of and support to diversity in the life sciences. For more information, visit the Holland Lecture Series Web page.
