During the event, LSU biologist Chris Austin will discuss his recent discovery of the world's smallest vertebrate, a tiny frog called Paedophryne amanuensis that averages around seven millimeters in size.


Also, Raina Wirta of the LSU School of Art will discuss how she is inspired by nature, while Christine Mitchell of the LSU VetMed Library shows examples from 25 years of LSU’s International Exhibition on Animals in Art.
