BETHEL – The Mahoosuc Land Trust will present the second of its Local Knowledge Series programs at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, in the Trustees’ Auditorium, McLaughlin Science Center, Gould Academy campus.

F. Daniel Vogt, professor of biological sciences, State University of New York in Plattsburgh, will give a slide presentation on “Cold Mice and Hot Bees.”

Vogt is formerly of Bethel and a Gould alumnus. His post-secondary education includes a B.A. (cum laude) in biology from Bowdoin College and a Ph.D. in biology from Wesleyan University.

He gained three years of post-doctoral experience with Dr. Bernd Heinrich in the latter’s University of Vermont lab. Vogt enjoys teaching general education courses for nonscience and science majors, and upper-level courses related to his research interest in the behavioral and physiological ecology of animals.

He has published a variety of investigations on how small animals, such as mice and bees, adapt to daily and seasonal changes in their environment. Most of his research has focused on body temperature regulation.

The Mahoosuc Land Trust offers the series to the public free of charge.
