Conservation Biology seminar

The Seminar is the informal platform where we exchange information about division activities and research projects. BSc, MSc and PhD students present here their research proposals and results. External speakers are also invited to contribute. The presentation usually lasts 30-40 minutes; local speakers can be interrupted by the audience when clarification is needed. A general discussion follows. Students intending to take part have to register on ILIAS before the start of the seminar. Registration of participating students on ePUB should be effected at latest two weeks before the end of the event.
