Migration is arguably one of the most dramatic phenomenon in all of natural history. How do scientists define migration apart from any other kind of movement? How do animals—birds, insects, mammals—sense the urgency to move or where to go? In what way is Pittsburgh and its surrounding natural environment a host site for thousands of migrating creatures?

Join MacArthur Fellow Jad Abumrad, host of the NPR broadcast and award-winning podcast RadioLab, in conversation with Eric Dorfman, director of Carnegie Museum of Natural History, for surprising insights and intriguing discussion into how mass movement has shaped the course of evolution.
