Friends at the Carnegie: Self Medication in Animals

Animals, including humans, have a long history of using plants as sources of medicine. Throughout the animal kingdom, there are fascinating examples of how animals self-medicate to reduce disease. Join Mark Hunter, University of Michigan, Earl E. Werner Distinguished University Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, on Monday, October 25 at 7:00pm in the Carnegie Building (451 E Mitchell St), to learn how monarch butterflies use plants to self-medicate against their parasites, and what we can learn about medicines and human health in our changing world. Registration is not required to attend this program.
