Professor to discuss Galapagos Islands trip during next Bergren Forum

Brad Bowden, professor emeritus of biology at Alfred University, will present “Walking in Darwin’s Footsteps” on Thursday, Feb. 24, during AU’s Bergren Forum, 12:10 p.m. in Powell Campus Center’s Nevins Theatre.

The forum will focus on Bowden’s trip to the Galapagos Islands in March 2010.

Bowden’s teaching interests included vertebrate reproductive physiology, especially the live-bearing semitropical fishes such as guppies, mollies, swordtails, and their relatives.

He earned a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts and a bachelor of science degree in zoology from the University of Connecticut.

The Bergren Forum, sponsored by the Alfred University Division of Human Studies, meets Thursdays during each academic semester at the University. Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch; coffee and tea will be available.
