Seminar on Hummingbird Physiology

I am pleased to be able to host Dr. Kenneth Welch today, who will be giving a seminar in the Department of Biological Sciences, Brock University on:

“Glucose, fructose and the energetics of hovering flight”

Ken is currently on sabbatical, but was gracious enough to add us to his travel schedule while back at his home institution (U of Toronto, Scarborough).

Location: MacKenzie Chown H313

Date/Time: Oct 7, 2016, 14:15

His research into hummingbird physiology sheds light on how locomotion is influenced by the environment and how one of the most intensely powered muscles receive the necessary fuels to power their activity.
