In the spirit of never-ending learning, the 21st Ecological Integration Symposium: Ecology in the Anthropocene will be held virtually. Interested attendees are invited to join from the comfort of their own homes via Zoom webinar from April 2-3.
This free, two-day event will explore the ecology of the Anthropocene, the Earth's current epoch. Thursday's professional talks will include discussions of the effects of nuclear accidents on wildlife, nitrogen as a driver of global change and what climate change means for species movements. Friday's activities will include student speakers, a virtual brown-bag lunch with speakers and a virtual poster room.
The EIS is an annual interdisciplinary symposium of research organized by graduate students at Texas A&M University. The event is supported in part by the university's departments of Animal Science, Ecology and Conservation Biology and Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences; Texas A&M University's LAUNCH, Applied Biodiversity Science and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology programs; Sea Grant Texas; and the Schubot Center for Avian Health.
