"Darwin week begins Tuesday with Jay Hosler, a biologist from DePauw University," adds the article. Hosler, a 1989 DePauw graduate, is Lee G. Hall Distinguished Visiting Professor of Biology at the University.

"His talk will focus on comic books, Darwin and natural history," says Rusty Gonser of ISU's department of life sciences. "He uses comic books to promote science education."
