We would like to invite you to attend a forthcoming Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Hannah Rowland, Professor Innes Cuthill and Dr Tom Pike, which may be of interest:

When senses take flight: the evolution, development, mechanisms and function of avian senses

Thursday 4 – Friday 5 September 2014
The Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, home of the Kavli Royal Society International Centre

Event information

Birds are adapted to a diverse range of habitats, and operate within a broad range of dietary niches. This diversity of life histories has resulted in an equally varied suite of adaptations for acquiring mates, finding food, avoiding predators and for navigation. In this meeting, a distinguished list of international researchers encompassing avian vision, taste, olfaction, geo-magnetic sense, nociception (pain), tactile sense, and emotion, will be brought together to discuss new and emerging evidence of the evolution, development, mechanisms and function of avian senses.

This meeting is free to attend but participants must request an invitation before they can register.

For more information please contact Naomi Asantewa-Sechereh at kavli.events@royalsociety.org or on 020 7451 2515.
