Event Description
On being an individual: a parasite’s perspective

Living things are complicated.  Even answering the seemingly simple question ‘what is an individual?’ becomes difficult when you know too much about real organisms.  Taking an evolutionary perspective, I’ll explore what it means to be an individual, why that concept is more complicated than you might think, and where some parasites fit into the picture. 


Dr. Allison Neal is an Assistant Professor of Biology who specializes in the ecology and evolutionary biology of parasites.  Her research focuses on two groups of parasites with complicated life cycles- malaria parasites and trematodes- that often encourage her to see the hidden complexity in living things.
