Featured Speaker: Danielle Lee, Ph.D., Visiting Assistant Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville

Across time, across the sea, across the land, across cultures, human societies have contended with rodent pests. In both agricultural and urban settings, diverse species of rats and mice have managed to make a living with us and off of us. Biologist and urban ecologist, Dr. Danielle Lee, reviews the history of our interactions with these rodents and discusses how they help us understand ourselves better.
