Live Chat: The Science of Fatherhood

See below for the chat box. Join us each Thursday at 3 p.m. EDT for a live conversation with leading scientists and expert reporters.
Today's Topic

In honor of Father's Day, ScienceLive takes a look this week at fatherhood throughout the animal kingdom. In some species, fathers show remarkable devotion to caring for their young. In others, deadbeat dads are the norm. What can other animals tell us about the evolution of paternal behavior? How does fatherhood change the brain? And what else are scientists learning about the biology of parenthood?

Join us for a live chat at 3 p.m. EDT on Thursday, 14 June, on this page. You can leave your questions in the comment box below before the chat starts. The full text of the chat will be archived on this page.
