Ever wonder what it’s like to work in a tropical rainforest? Or what ancient DNA is? Or how scientists are using specimens collected in the late 1800s to study extinct birds?

Then get your questions ready for #AskACurator day on Twitter! 

Dr. Brian Smith, an assistant curator of ornithology in the Division of Vertebrate Zoology at the American Museum of Natural History, will be answering your queries on September 17 from 3 to 4 pm EDT. Just tweet your questions to @amnh using the hashtag #AskaCurator.

His research focuses on the evolution of birds, and particularly on  the avian tree of life.  Just last week, his research about the speciation of birds in the Neotropics was published in the journal Nature.
