Dear ASCers

If you're in Sydney tonight, be sure not to miss the first Club Cosmos
event, “What Have Animals Ever Done For Us?”

A science in the pub style event, it will be recorded for podcast and
vodcast on the COSMOS and RiAus sites later this year. Not only will you
have a lot of fun, you can win $260 worth of prizes!

*WHEN: *7pm to 9pm tonight (Sept 22)
*WHERE: *Top floor, Harlequin Inn, 152-156 Harris Street, Pyrmont NSW 2009

*SUMMARY:* “What Have Animals Ever Done For Us?”

Do we really need animals? What’s all this biodiversity stuff anyway? To
celebrate the International Year of Biodiversity, we’re getting together a
microbiologist, an ecologist and an insect-loving entomologist to discuss –
over a few beers and peanuts – why would should care about biodiversity at
all. Chaired by Wilson da Silva, editor of COSMOS, it promises to be a night
of fun, stimulating discussion, a few laughs, door prizes plus real science
with a beer chaser. Panelists are: insect-plant relations specialist, Dieter
Hochuli; entomology senior lecturer, Sarah Mansfield; and microbe champion,
Brendan Burns.
