Spring 2021 Ecology Seminars

Kansas Biological Survey Ecology Seminars are held on Fridays at 12:15 p.m. and are open to the public. During the spring 2021 semester, seminars will be held via Zoom and will include one 50-minute talk or two 20-minute talks. Recordings of each talk will be posted on our YouTube channel during the following week.

Join the mailing list! For notifications and reminders of upcoming seminars, share your name and email address using our quick webform. Note: If you use Gmail and do not receive an email in the coming week, please check your Promotions tab and move any emails from us to your Primary tab.

If you have questions about the seminars, email Prof. Helen Alexander, halexander@ku.edu, or Prof. Ben Sikes, ben.sikes@ku.edu.

Our seminars cover a wide range of topics that broadly relate to ecology and/or conservation issues. Often presentations are given by KU faculty, staff or students, but we also have talks by people at nearby colleges/universities, visitors to campus, or people in the region. Most of our talks are research-oriented, but this seminar series also has been a good forum for sharing information about nonprofits or government agencies. We interpret “talks” broadly; some are polished presentations, while others are opportunities to discuss ideas or a tentative plan for a project.

Use the Zoom link and passcode below, each week, for all spring semester seminars. Please do NOT share this link and password on social media.
