Folks from ALL departments as well as prospective students are invited to attend, and all graduate students are invited to present their research in any area of ecology. The GSSE is a unique and valuable forum for sharing ideas across programs, departments, and labs, and for fostering new connections and collaborations. It is also a great opportunity for graduate students to get comfortable presenting to a broader ecological audience. The GSSE is a free event!
Virtual format: The 2021 Symposium will be the first entirely virtual symposium in light of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. We know that our GGE community is as strong, curious and supportive as ever during this crisis time, and we look forward to sharing the exceptional scientific efforts and creative endeavors to which we have all been dedicated while socially distanced. See the flyer for links to the Zoom event for presentations and the keynote address, and the Remo event for the poster session!
Eco-Art and Photo Contest: Ecologically-inspired artwork from student artists available to view here! Prizes will be awarded to the attendee favorites.
Prizes will also be awarded by audience vote to favorite research presentation and poster, and raffle prizes for attendees!
Please contact this year's GSSE Chairs Lauren Redosh and David Mitchell with any questions!
EGSA’s annual Graduate Student Symposium in Ecology (GSSE) is a unique forum for sharing research ideas across graduate programs, departments, and labs, and fostering new collaborations. With at least 17 graduate programs and departments at UC Davis that conduct ecological research, the Graduate Student Symposium in Ecology provides an ideal place for graduate students to practice giving scientific presentations to the broader ecological community on campus. Each year the symposium features talks and posters from UC Davis graduate students working in any field of ecology, a prominent, student-nominated ecologist as keynote speaker, and a photo contest.
