Science Friday, NPR’s popular weekly science talk show, will tape an upcoming program in the American Museum of Natural History.
Host Ira Flatow will interview paleoanthropologist Ian Tattersall, co-curator of the Museum’s Spitzer Hall of Human Origins whose research focuses on the human fossil record and human cognition. His latest book, Masters of the Planet: The Search for Our Human Origins, traces how Homo sapiens became the dominant human species.
In addition, Flatow will speak with a panel of urban biodiversity experts, including Eleanor Sterling, director of the Museum’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation; Jason Munshi-South, assistant professor of environmental science at the City University of New York; Sarah Aucoin, director of the Urban Park Rangers of New York City; and Merry Camhi, director of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s New York Seascape initiative.
