Evening Lecture with Jonathan Silverton,
‘Dinner with Darwin: Food, Drink and Evolution’
Thursday 16th January 2020, 7pm
All food is the product of evolution and diet has shaped our own evolution, too. Delving beneath these simple facts produces plenty to wonder at. One puzzling fact is that though we are mammals nurtured on milk, 70% of us worldwide cannot digest milk as adults. Evolutionary biology provides the answers to such puzzles. Jonathan Silverton is Professor of Evolutionary Ecology in the Institute of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Edinburgh.
