Seminars

REC-group seminars are held via Zoom. During the spring 2021 REC organizes talks given by REC group members and invited speakers. About once a month there will be flexi slots.

During the spring 2021 there will be REC invited speakers from other universities and these seminars will be open for everyone.

REC seminar talks are given by REC research group members in their past, present and future research. Talks will cover a large spectrum of different topics related to ecology and evolutionary biology.

Flexi slots are well described by their name: they are slots with varying contents, such as workshops, journal clubs and other research related activities.

Person giving a REC talk or hosting a flexi slot will act as the chair in next seminar and send a reminder email to REC groups mailing list a couple of days before the actual seminar.
