Fitness in humans rarely goes hand in hand with fatness. But for seals, to be fit they have to be fat. This talk by Kimberley Bennett (Lecturer in Biomedical Science at Abertay University) will explore why being fat is so important to seals, what we know about how they regulate fatness compared with humans, how pollutants can influence body fat control in both seals and humans and the potential consequences for human and animal health.
Refreshments will be served after the talk. Please enter by the main front door of the Carnelley Building, facing the back of the Tower Building. Latecomers may not be admitted.
