Dr. Stacey Weiss is a Distinguished Professor of Biology and an award winning teacher at the University of Puget Sound. She began her work on sexually selected traits in females during her PhD at Duke University and continues that work today in collaboration with numerous Puget Sound undergraduate students. Her research focuses on female-specific ornaments in lizards, asking questions about the expression and function of both visual and chemical signals. In another major line of investigation, she examines the role of microbes in protecting eggs from fungal infection in natural populations.

There will be free treats from Old Town Delights for all attendees!

Undoubtedly one of the most romantic movies of all time...
David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
There's a vulnerable undercurrent beneath this film, one that beats and throbs with the stolen looks, brief touches and romantic under-the-stars kisses.
Allyson Johnson, The Young Folks
The film asks us to consider the very nature and purpose of our existence in a fragmentary, superficial and transient universe.
