Jerran Flinders to give BYU Tanner lecture Nov. 19

A Brigham Young University professor of integrative biology will deliver the semiannual John Tanner Lectureship Wednesday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m. in the Tanner Auditorium at the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum.

Jerran Flinders will give the address, "A Wildlifer's Odyssey." The lecture is free and open to everyone. A reception at 6:30 p.m. at the Bean Museum will precede the lecture. The public is welcome to attend.

Flinders has taught at BYU since 1976. His research has focused on using methods of behavioral ecology to address management or conservation-related problems.

He is a member of many organizations, including the National Wildlife Federation, the Society for Range Management and the International Society for Behavioral Ecology.

The lectureship honors experts in fields of natural history. It began in 1989 through a donation by the John Tanner Family Organization. A lecture and reception is held each semester.

The lectureship is named after John Tanner, a 19th century Utah businessman who helped in the westward migration of Mormon pioneers.

For more information about the lectureship, contact the Bean Museum at (801) 378-5052.
