Host: Marty Krkosek

Abstract: The talk has 2 parts: 1) stories on infidelity and 2)

stories on long living. I present stories on interesting dynamics of

extra-pair (group) mating in two species of sparrows: house sparrows

and hedge sparrows (aka dunnocks). Both sparrow stories will challenge

conventional views. Then, in the second part, which is completely

unrelated to the first part (unfortunately), I present 3 meta-analyses

which investigated how to live long. And I should be able to give my

audience some advice upon long

healthy living!
