This year's Early Career Scientist Symposium will be held Saturday, March 10, 2018 in Palmer Commons on the campus of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and the theme is the Ecology and Evolution of Color.
Coloration is fundamental to the ecology and evolution of organisms and has a valuable research legacy across plants and animals. Recent innovations in both technology and investigative approaches have propelled coloration to an exciting emerging frontier in integrative biology.
Keynote speakers and emerging leaders include Molly Cummings, University of Texas at Austin and Marcus Kronforst, University of Chicago. Each will present his/her research that examines the function of color, visual ecology, micro- and macroevolutionary mechanisms mediating pigmentation diversity, pollination biology, and mechanisms of color production.
REGISTER to attend. Registration is free of charge but participants are strongly encouraged to register so adequate food and refreshment can be provided.
Graduate and undergraduate students from all universities and all disciplines are invited to present their work during a lunchtime poster session, and can indicate so when they register. University of Michigan EEB students are particularly encouraged to show off their own work and seek feedback from the scholars in attendance. Read about poster specifications.
Lunch will be provided at the poster session and a reception will follow the symposium.
