Date: June 10, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
UMBC professor Mercedes Burns shows us the marvelous world of daddy long legs. From their common names to their bite, the arachnid order Opiliones, also known as “daddy-longlegs” or “harvestmen,” have been historically misunderstood. Dr. Burns dispels common myths about the wonderfully diverse Opilones of North America by discussing their physiology, behavior, and treatment throughout history.
