Spring 2018 UT Science Forum, Friday’s @ noon!

March 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

WUTK stays on the air with donations from listeners and the non-profit University of Tennessee College of Arts and Sciences and the UT Science Forum, a weekly Friday lunchtime lecture series on the UT campus.


The “chick-a-dee” call of chickadees and titmice is a ridiculously complicated vocal signal. In fact, some researchers have argued that it is the most complex vocal signaling system outside of human language. Why do these small songbirds have such a complicated call? Todd Freeberg, professor in the Department of Psychology and adjunct professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology will aim to answer that question.


On Friday, March 23, Prof. Todd Freeberg will present “Why Do Chickadees Have Such Complex Calls?” at 12P.M. in the Thompson Boling Area Café, Room A. This educational forum is free to the public, including UT students.
