Speciation Day

Cornell Evo-Group

Speciation Day

Registration Information

No registrations are available

Event Details


Speciation Day is an all-day event centered on the substantial strength in speciation studies at Cornell, Rochester and Syracuse universities. Researchers from these local institutions and a small number of invitees from elsewhere will present 15 short seminars which provide a focus for the day’s activities, which will also include plenty of time for discussion and viewing posters.

Therefore, Speciation Day provides a local forum for those involved in speciation studies.
