Summer student, Dept of Plant Sciences, U of S
I am about to graduate with a degree in Applied Plant Ecology and this is my first Ecology conference! I did an undergraduate thesis with Dr. Eric Lamb on the effect of exotic plant invasion on native richness and I am interested in invasion and fire ecology. Orchids are also a special... Read More →

Student and Post Doc Strategies for Success
This session and mixer will provide students with a unique opportunity to meet with postdocs and professors of diverse backgrounds to discuss certain aspects of successful careers in research. While the advice will be serious, the event will take place in an informal pub setting. The bar will be arranged so that there are different stations with resident experts dedicated to each subject. Students will be free to move from topic to topic and engage in the discourse over a few pints.
