NOTED ECOLOGIST IS MUSEUM SPEAKER

Dr. Thomas Eisner, recipient of the 1994 National Medal of Science and a world-renowned chemical ecologist, will deliver a lecture on "The Language of Insects" at 7:30 p.m. today in the auditorium of the Buffalo Museum of Science, 1020 Humboldt Parkway.

Eisner, the Schurman professor of chemical ecology at Cornell University, has been named 1997 distinguished lecturer by the Buffalo Society of Natural Sciences.

His lecture will cover how insects use chemicals to protect their offspring, repel enemies, fend off disease and communicate.

The free lecture, which will be followed by a reception, is the second in a series that began Friday with a talk on the Earth's vast treasury of potential medicines and other chemically useful products.
