The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan is pleased to announce an exciting international symposium about the ecology and evolution of color.

We are pleased to announce the keynote and early career speakers and REGISTRATION is open at this link:

Our keynote speakers are: Molly Cummings, University of Texas at Austin and Marcus Kronforst, University of Chicago. You can read more about our keynote speakers and our early career speakers under the speakers tab on our ECSS website.

This year’s theme is the Ecology and Evolution of Color. Coloration is fundamental to the ecology and evolution of organisms and has a valuable research legacy across plants and animals. Recent innovations in both technology and investigative approaches have propelled coloration to an exciting emerging frontier in integrative biology.

Our outstanding lineup of keynote speaker​s​ and emerging leaders will present their research examining the function of color, visual ecology, micro- and macroevolutionary mechanisms mediating pigmentation diversity, pollination biology, and mechanisms of color production. The causes and consequences of color diversity provide a compelling and interdisciplinary topic spanning diverse research interests across our department. We truly believe there will be something for everyone.
