Across the Tree of Life: Interactions in Ecology and Evolution
The 2018 Ecological Integration Symposium Committee invites you to attend the 19th Annual Texas A&M University Ecological Integration Symposium on April 5th and 6th at Rudder Tower and Theater at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas.
The Ecological Integration Symposium is an interdisciplinary, graduate student led and organized event that unites students and renowned researchers in the themes of ecology, conservation, evolutionary biology, geography, and more.
During this free, two-day event we will explore ecology through the theme of Across the Tree of Life: Interactions in Ecology and Evolution. This year, plenary speaker and student presentations will be spread across both days. The symposium will close with a speaker panel and awards presentation on Friday afternoon.
We are excited to announce our 2018 plenary speakers: Dr. Caren Cooper, North Carolina State University; Dr. Tim Coulson, University of Oxford; Dr. Gretchen Hofmann, University of California, Santa Barbara; Dr. Israel del Toro, Lawrence University; Dr. Rana El-Sabaawi, University of Victoria.
