Now that everyone has had a week to settle into the new semester, we will be holding our first EEBISO meeting this Friday at 5:30pm at O’Bannon’s (on Northgate).
We would like to invite any grad students interested in participating to come join us and learn more about what we do. You do not need to be a part of the EEB Doctoral Program to participate, just have an interest in EEB topics. Our first journal club discussion will be next week (information to follow).
This week EEB Journal Club will be discussing the paper “Patterns of sexual dimorphism in Mexican alligator lizards” by Dashevsky and colleagues. Our first EEB seminar speaker Jesse Meik is a co-author. Journal club will meet in ILSB 3145 from 4-5pm. [Get the paper.]
