The Inside Out of Flies

Online talk with Dr Erica McAlister, Natural History Museum, London

Flies are some of the most diverse creatures on the planet – not just in numbers but in looks – from stalk eyes to antlers, to massive wings to none at all, to curly abdomens and hairy legs – they are as diverse in form as they are in function. Join scientist and author, Dr Erica McAlister, to discover these amazing adaptations and how they have enabled flies to explore further than most other animals.

Erica McAlister has worked at the Natural History Museum for 15 years, curating and researching part of the extensive fly collection as well as adding to it from fieldwork across the globe.

Watch this talk from the comfort of home on the NHSN Youtube Channel, premiering Friday 6 November at 7.00 pm.
