The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan presents an exciting international symposium on the conceptual and methodological integration of paleontological and phylogenetic approaches to the study of macroevolution. The symposium will take place Saturday, March 16, 2013, in East Hall, Room 1324 on the Ann Arbor, Mich. campus. Registration is now open.
Our 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.
We are pleased to announce our keynote speakers: Dr. Douglas H. Erwin, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and Robert E. Ricklefs, University of Missouri at St. Louis.
Graduate 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. For poster specifications, please refer to the poster link on this page. Lunch will be provided at the poster session and a dinner reception will follow the symposium.
