The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University of Michigan invites you to attend the 18th Annual Early Career Scientists Symposium (ECSS). This year, we are excited to announce the theme “Global Change and its Consequences for Green Life.” Green life (i.e. plants, algae, microbes) form the basis of productivity in most ecosystems. Understanding how environmental change can impact the ecology and evolution of green life on earth is critical to the future of most communities, ecosystems, and human societies.
The theme includes, but is not limited to:
1. Direct and indirect impacts of environmental change on green life survival, reproduction, and distribution
2. How green life can buffer the impact of global change
3. Evolutionary responses of green life to environmental change/stress
4. Green life functional traits and their environmental correlates
5. Agroecology

The 2023 ECSS will be held on the 31st of March 2023 at the University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Garden in Ann Arbor, MI. Six early career scientists will be selected to present their work, and two keynote speakers will be featured. The symposium will also have an afternoon poster session with featured lightning talks and ample time for networking during coffee breaks.

For the chosen talks, we consider early career scientists as senior graduate students (who stand to receive their Ph.D. within two years), postdoctoral researchers, faculty or staff scientists within their first or second year, and researchers at equivalent career stages who are not affiliated with an academic institution.
