Spring 2012 seminars are held on Mondays at 5:00 PM in AA-G008.
The Evolutionary Studies seminar series presents a guest speaker on an evolution-related topic about every week. It’s a great way to learn about evolution directly from a wide variety of scientists, and an excellent opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussion with researchers as well as your peers. Seminars are open to everyone. Students are encouraged to enroll in BIOL 480S, a 2-credit course based on the seminar series (to register, submit a petition to the biology department office).
