The Testers Symposium is a wonderful opportunity for graduates and undergraduates to present their research or proposed research to a friendly audience. This year we will feature 3 types of presentation forms: posters, 5-min rapid-fire presentations and 15-min presentations.
We are extremely delighted to have Dr. Jeremy Jackson as our distinguished guest. Dr. Jackson is the author of more than 100 scientific publications and five books. Jackson is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Association for the Advancement of Science and recipient of numerous international prizes and awards including most recently the Roger Torrey Peterson Medal from Harvard University, the Paleontological Medal, the Society for Conservation Biology LaRoe Award for Outstanding Contributions to Conservation Biology, and the BBVA International Award for Research in Ecology and Conservation. His current research includes the long-term impacts of human activities on the oceans and the ecological and evolutionary consequences of the gradual formation of the Isthmus of Panama.
We invite submission of abstracts for oral and poster presentations at the annual Tester Memorial Symposium, hosted by the Department of Biology at UH Manoa. The call for abstracts will close at 11:59 PM on March 13, 2015.
