28th Annual Pacific Ecology and Evolution Conference
2-4 March 2007
The Pacific Ecology & Evolution Conference (PEEC) is an annual conference on
ecological and evolutionary research for scientists from the western United
States and Canada. Participants may give oral or poster presentations on their
research - or just attend to hear what their peers are up to. Graduate students, advanced undergrads, and post-docs from all branches of ecology and evolutionary biology are especially encouraged to attend. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, behavioral ecology, population biology, evolution, conservation, ecological genetics, molecular ecology, and community ecology. As well as a formal forum for presenting current advances in ecological research, the PEEC is also an excellent opportunity to meet fellow researchers and discuss ideas with them. Nightly festivities are a tradition.
We are delighted to announce that Dr. Dolph Schluter of the University of
British Columbia will give a keynote address.
Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are due January 19th. Funding is
available for presenters who are current undergraduates or who completed their
bachelor’s degree within the last year. Please see the website for details.
The 28th annual PEEC will be hosted by the University of Washington at the Pack
Forest Center for Sustainable Forestry. Support is provided by the UW School of
Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and the Canada Chapter of the Ecological Society of America. To submit abstracts, register, and for more information, please visit the website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
