Details About the talk

A ecologista Deborah Gordon estuda as formigas onde quer que as encontre — no deserto, nos trópicos, na cozinha... Nesta palestra fascinante, explica a sua obsessão por insetos que muitos de nós afastaríamos alegremente sem pensar duas vezes. Considera que a vida das formigas fornece um modelo útil para aprendermos sobre muitos outros sistemas, incluindo a doença, a tecnologia e o cérebro humano.
