Early Career Scientists Symposium 2013
The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology invites you to the 2013 Early Career Scientist Symposium, Saturday, March 16, 2013 at East Hall on the campus of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The theme this year is Macroevolution: fossils, frameworks, and phylogenies.
An outstanding lineup of up-and-coming field leaders will address cutting-edge approaches for revealing large-scale patterns and processes of evolution, using methods and data from fields as diverse as paleobiology, genomics, systematics, mathematical modeling, ecology and developmental biology. The keynote addresses will be given by Dr. Douglas H. Erwin, Santa Fe Institute and Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History who presents “Changing dynamics in macroevolution,” and Robert E. Ricklefs, University of Missouri at St. Louis, presenting “My half century with the taxon cycle.”
