March's Science Café features Sarah Partan, Hampshire College, who will present Beyond the Chatter: Adventures in Animal Communication.

Learn about the fascinating world of animal communication and the answers to such questions as: Why did the robot squirrel wave its tail? What do female pigeons really want, his song or his dance? Do urban birds find it harder to get a date over all that noise?

All Science Café events are free and designed for a public audience.  Light snacks will be provided and drinks will be available for purchase. For more information, visit

The Science Café series is organized by graduate students in the organismic and evolutionary biology (OEB) graduate program at UMass Amherst, and is supported by the Society for the Study of Evolution, the Massachusetts Academy of Sciences, OEB, and the UMass Natural History Collections. Organizers bring engaging conversations about science to broad audiences by hosting Science Café events throughout the year.
