Claire E. Terhune, Ph.D., assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Arkansas, will discuss the relationship between bite force and gape among primates at noon on Friday, March 4 in D-207.

She earned her doctorate degree at Arizona State University and served as primary instructor for anatomy in the physician assistant program at Duke University Medical Center prior to joining U of A.
