Join Beth Shapiro as she explores the human history of remaking nature, from the very first dog to glowing fish and designer pigs.


In this talk, Beth will reveal the surprisingly long history of human intervention in evolution through hunting, domesticating, polluting, hybridising, conserving and genetically modifying life on Earth.


Copies of Beth's book 'Life as We Made It: How 50,000 years of human innovation refined – and redefined – nature' are available from amazon and all good book shops.


This is a livestream event where the speaker and audience come together online. 


Beth Shapiro is an American evolutionary molecular biologist. She is a Professor in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Her work has centered on the analysis of ancient DNA.
