Land Application is typically an annual event held by Extension in Nebraska, but this year is special because of the Manure Expo in July. This year, we will be hosting archive days where various locations across the state will be playing the archive of last year's Land Application Training. Attending this event will fulfill title 130 requirements for Initial Land Application Training. This event will not meet requirements for recertification training.
The nature and extent of experimentation in ancient Greek and Roman science remains controversial. The lecture will address some of the more controversial issues by analyzing several experiments conducted on living animals and humans from the fourth century BCE to the second century CE by ancient biologists and physicians. The motivations of the ancient experimenters, their methods, their results, and the range of animal species – indigenous and exotic – they used as experimental subjects will be examined. Significant changes in the social and political contexts of experimentation will also be explored, in particular the move from a long tradition of conducting such experiments only in private to performing experiments on living animals in public spaces, often before a large audience.
The final part of the talk will discuss the limits on animal and human experimentation in antiquity.
