Join Museum entomologist Erica McAlister as she reveals The Secret Life of Flies.
From hungry herbivores and precocious pollinators to robberflies, danceflies and the much-maligned mosquito, Erica dispels common misconceptions about flies, revealing the importance of these tiny creatures.
Learn about flies without wings, rotating genitalia and the terrible hairy fly. Find out how flies play a key role in solving crimes, why fly taxonomy matters and how the key issues of conservation, climate change and biodiversity loss impact the fly.
After the talk you will have the chance to ask Erica questions. Following this there will be a book signing in our Flett Foyer.
