College professor's picture picked
Richard Harwood, earth science professor, will be part of a new permanent exhibit at the Field Museum in Chicago. His photo of Mount Bruce in western Australia will be part of "Evolving Planet", which opened Friday, March 10, 2006. The exhibit is about evolution and is a journey through four billion years of life on Earth, from single-celled organisms to dinosaurs and humans. The Mount Bruce picture will be used to illustrate banded iron formations in a section of the display on the evolution of photosynthetic organisms.
