Dr. Karen James of the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory spoke about some of her projects, including extracting DNA from one of Darwin's bird specimens to help a conservation plan in the Galapagos and repeating a botanical survey done by Darwin near his home, Down House. She also talked about her work with The HMS Beagle Project, a UK-based charity that seeks to rebuild the famous little ship that carried Darwin around the world.
This lecture was given on May 30, 2013 at the Moore Auditorium on the campus of SERC Institute and Acadia National Park in Winter Harbor Maine.
