Welcome to the EEB Seminar Series!

The Ecology, Evolution, and Behaviour Seminar Series occurs weekly throughout the fall and winter terms. We meet in the EEB seminar room beside the lunch room on the fourth floor of Biosciences Complex. Seminars are typically 40-50 minutes in duration beginning at 12:30pm. Speakers (and audience members) are a mix of students, postdocs and faculty from Queen's and other institutions as well. Preceeding each talk (beginning 12:15), coffee, tea and treats are served to induce conversation. All welcome! The 2013 fall term schedule will be run by by the Friesen Lab; should you have suggestions for speakers please contact:
