Another year and it’s time for Ecological Integration Symposium (EIS) 2020!
Join us in Rudder Tower from 8:30am-5pm on Thursday April 2nd and Friday April 3rd, 2020.
The EIS is a COMPLETELY FREE conference on campus where students can listen to top ecologists from around the world, peers’ research being conducted at Texas A&M (and nearby universities), as well as have the opportunity to present their own research. This year, our theme is “Ecology in the Anthropocene,” highlighting ecosystems in a human dominated world.
This year the students have designed their own website to increase participation by committee members. After the event, the student site will be archived here on the EEB website. The website address is https://sites.google.com/tamu.edu/eis/home
