Profs & Pints: Spiders, a Love Story.
Profs and Pints presents: Spiders, a Love Story, with leading arachnid expert Linda S. Rayor, senior lecturer and senior research associate in Cornell Universitys Department of Entomology.

Spiders are the dominant terrestrial predators on Earth and have a major impact on most ecosystems. Humans have long looked upon them with a combination of fear and fascination, given their unusual biology and the ability of a few species to harm us with their venom. Most of us, however, have very little understanding of them, and their behavioral biology is far more interesting than commonly known.

Come learn all about arachnids from Linda Rayor, senior lecturer and senior research associate in Cornell Universitys Department of Entomology, long-time researcher and lover of spiders, and former co-host of the Science Channels Monster Bug Wars. Her fascinating talk will weave together facts that will leave you appreciating spiders more than you have since Charlotte beckoned you from her web.

This presentation wont be something youd hear read aloud from a childrens book, however. No, Dr. Rayor is going to focus a lot on spider sex, which she sees as one of the richest areas of research in behavioral arachnology. Moreover, the sex shell be discussing is anything but vanilla. Youll learn how spiders engage in multiple forms of seduction, and how many are into sexual cannibalism and genital mutilation. Extreme size differences in the sexes further spice things up. Much of her talk will be spun from her research on big huntsmen spiders, which she describes as gorgeous and social. Who wouldnt swipe right if it meant having someone like that sitting beside them on a tuffet?

While conflict, competition, and cannibalism are the norm for most spider interactions, 2% of spiders live in cooperative groups. Dr. Rayor will describe what they get out of living with up to hundreds of their closest kin. She also will discuss the stunning array of adaptations that spiders have evolved to hunt better and avoid being eaten by their own diverse assortment of predators, and shell tell you how spider venom is being researched as a potential source of a treatment for many human diseases.

You wont have to worry about getting washed down any water spouts, but the Bier Baron will have its beer taps flowing.
