Our colloquium speakers give one-hour presentations on ecology, evolution, conservation biology, and plant/ecosystem science and come from academic, governmental agencies, and non-profit institutions. Colloquia are held in the Davidson Math and Science building (DMS) in room 103 on Thursdays at 4:00 PM.
After each talk, please join the speaker, host, and fellow colleagues for drinks and appetizers at a reception to be held at a local restaurant or brewery. The location of the reception will vary so please contact the host for details.
If you are interested in talking with the speaker, we highly encourage you to contact the host to set up a meeting. We look forward to your participation in our upcoming colloquia!
