A special presentation by Bree Putman, Ph.D., Department of Biology, Cal State San Bernardino and the Natural History Museum of L.A. County. Urbanization is growing worldwide, displacing native wildlife. Yet, some animals do well in urban areas (think of pigeons!). But why are some animals better than others at responding to such habitat changes? Dr. Putman will present her research that looks at whether our native lizard species differ in their fear responses toward humans, which may be associated with their survival and success in urban environments.
