Ecology and Evolution Seminar Series
Welcome to the Ecology & Evolution Seminar Series page!
This seminar series aims to provide a platform for researchers in the feilds of evolution and ecology from across the UK to showcase their work here at Silwood Park.
Seminars are held in the Centre for Population Biology (CPB) common room, Silwood Park campus, Thursdays at 13.00.
Meeting a speaker
If you would like to meet with the seminar speaker, please contact the host listed below.
Inviting a speaker
If you have a speaker you would like to invite to give a seminar, please see the timetable below for available slots.
Once you have a speaker provisionally interested in giving a talk, email email@example.com with contact information and the preferred slot. We will double-check availability and provide further details to the speaker. Accommodation can also be arranged if required. You will act as the host for that speaker and will be in charge of organising the day for the speaker (meetings etc). Please be aware the timetable is not updated daily.
Most presentations will be recorded using Panopto (Imperial login required). You can find all of the recorded talks in the Silwood Ecology & Evolution Seminar Series folder, here. Note not all talks are recorded, for various reasons. Direct links to some previous seminars are provided at the bottom of this page.
Schedules for upcoming terms and for previous terms are given below. Blank slots are free. Asterisks denotes special seminar outwith the usual slot (**).
