Paul Ehrlich Lecture to be Aired on Fort Collins Television

A lecture given at Colorado State University on April 9 by Paul Ehrlich, a noted population biologist whose contributions to evolutionary and population biology have included the seminal book, "The Population Bomb," will be aired on local television during the month of May.

Ehrlich was keynote speaker at the second annual Thornton-Massa Lecture at Colorado State. The lecture could not accommodate all who wanted to attend and hundreds were turned away at the door.

"The broadcast of the lecture will provide an excellent opportunity for those people we could not accommodate, or who were unable to attend the lecture," said Georgeann Venis, assistant to the dean in the College of Natural Sciences at Colorado State.

The lecture, "Human Natures: Genes, Ethics and Conservation," will be broadcast every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30-7:45 p.m. during the entire month of May on cable channel 25. The lecture also will be aired on Fort Collins city cable channel 27 every Sunday from 7-8:15 p.m. during the month.

Ehrlich is the author of more than 800 scientific and popular papers and is credited with bringing the issues of overpopulation and hunger to worldwide attention.
