Fall 2015 EvoS Seminar Series

Fall 2015 seminars are held on Mondays at 5:15 PM in Academic A-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 EVOS 451/ BIOL 680S, a 2-credit course based on the seminar series.

Reading will be posted to the EvoS blackboard group. Anyone with a Binghamton University email address can request to be added to the blackboard group by emailing EvoS[at]binghamton[dot]edu.
