The 2016 Ecological Integration Symposium Committee invites you to attend the 17th Annual Texas A&M University Ecological Integration Symposium on March 31-April 1 at Rudder Tower and Theater at Texas A&M University – College Station.  The Ecological Integration Symposium is an interdisciplinary, graduate student led and organized event that unites students with world renowned researchers in the themes of ecology, conservation, evolutionary biology, geography, and more.

During this free, two-day event we will explore the ecological and social challenges we face towards achieving sustainability in a human-dominated landscape through the theme of Ecological Perspectives in Sustainability. This year, we will be hosting a day of speaker presentations at Rudder Theater on March 31, and student presentations on the 4th floor of Rudder Tower on April 1, 2016.

The 2016 plenary speakers include Dr. Jayne Belnap, research ecologist with the USGS; Dr. Ruth DeFries, professor at Columbia University; Dr. Lisa Naughton-Treves, professor at University of Wisconsin-Madison; Dr. Stuart Pimm, professor at Duke University; and Dr. Peter Vitousek, professor at Stanford University.

We are now accepting abstracts for student presentations in talk and poster formats.  Both graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to present original research during the student research symposium on Friday, April 1.  Please visit our presentation registration page for more information on submission requirements and procedures:
