EEB events: Early Career Scientists Symposium 2012: Biodiversity Informatics
The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan will present outstanding scientists early in their careers to take part in an international symposium on biodiversity informatics and its application to research in ecology and evolutionary biology. The Early Career Scientists Symposium will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan on March 25, 2012. Eight scientists and a plenary speaker who are pursuing cutting-edge approaches to biodiversity sciences that integrate and/or synthesize informatics resources, including genomic/genetic, phylogenetic, morphological, geographic, and ecological datasets and those who are leveraging information from natural history collections, have been announced on the website.
We are pleased to announce Dr. Robert Guralnick, associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, University of Colorado at Boulder, is the keynote speaker. He will present "Mapping life: challenges with overcoming the Wallacean shortfall and documenting global scale biodiversity change."
Location: Forum Hall Auditorium, 4th floor, Palmer Commons
