– Submission from Jason: “OMSI Science Pub Hillsboro presents Spider Venoms: Tools of Tiny Predators, with Greta Binford, PhD. 7:00pm – 9:00pm at the Venetian Theater and Bistro. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. Come early for food and drinks! Spiders (all 42,000 species) play key roles in our ecosystems as predators of insects. Without spiders there would be many more insects and thus fewer plants. Evolution over the last 400 million years has created enormous diversity of predatory tactics, including web and venom use, which has resulted in a phenomenal diversity of silk and venom chemistry. This talk will highlight some of the beautiful biological diversity of spiders’ feeding biology, silks, and venoms with a special emphasis on species native to the Pacific Northwest. We’ll also discuss and clarify some of the misconceptions associated with spider bites in this region.” $5 suggested cover charge, No RSVP or tickets required.
