The Science of Wildlife Diseases @ Online
Oct 1 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Wild animals, domestic animals and humans share a large and increasing number of infectious diseases, known as zoonoses.  Humans and wildlife are more close than they ever have been and that increased interaction between humans and other animals facilitates infectious disease emergence.  Wildlife diseases can affect the sustainability of many populations.   Through this virtual event we will talk about diseases such as chronic wasting disease, white-nose syndrome, chytrid fungus and how they affect animals here in Nebraska.

This event is FREE, but requires pre-registration:

The Science of Fungi @ Online
Oct 8 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Tens of thousands of organisms from mushrooms to mold to yeast, fall under the umbrella of fungi.  At first these organisms were thought to be plants, but they have now emerged as their own taxonomic kingdom.  Fungi are extremely diverse with many unique structures and properties, some innocuous, some useful and some harmful.  Throughout this virtual event we will talk about what fungi are, the cool structures and functions they have, and what fungi are found in Nebraska.

The Science of Snakes @ Online
Oct 22 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

There are more than 3,000 different species of snakes on the planet and they’re found just about everywhere.  In Nebraska we have 29 species of snakes, and only four of them are venomous.  Throughout this webinar event we will talk about the different types of snakes we have, their special adaptations for their region, the venom that some develop and how they eat, slither, communicate and live their daily lives.  Through this virtual event we will have a few live education animals as well!

The Science of Nebraska Fish @ Online
Oct 29 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Nebraska is home to more than 100 species of fish, and being in the center of the Great Plains isn’t always super pleasant if you’re a fish.  With cold winters, hot summers and variable rainfall it, at times, is a harsh place to live and thrive.  With 78 of our 100 species of fish being native to Nebraska they still vary widely in adaptions, color, size, diet and habitat.  Through this virtual event we will highlight some of the amazing and unique fish that Nebraska houses.  We will also discuss the special adaptations each fish uses to survive in their habitats.
