Amazon Adventure tells the story of Henry Bates, whose 11-year journey through the Amazon rainforest led to crucial contributions in biology. Bates identified 8,000 new species; discovered the mind-boggling “Batesian” mimicry phenomenon, in which edible animals deceive predators by adopting the look of poisonous animals; and collected the first evidence of speciation, or the birth of new species. This discovery became known as the “beautiful proof” for natural selection. Come see how current genetic research is uncovering the microscopic mechanisms behind speciation in the same animals at the heart of Bates’ discoveries 150 years ago.
