Distinguished Ecologist Lecture Series

We welcome distinguished ecologists each fall to the Distinguished Ecologist Lecture Series (DELS). The Series is co-sponsored by the Ecosystem Science Center and the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science.

Graduate students enrolled in FW5000 receive one credit for attending the series and can take the course as many times as they like. They have the opportunity to meet the guest ecologists in pre- and post-lecture meetings to review their research and discuss its impact on the field of ecology.  For more information, please contact  Research Assistant Professor Amber Roth.
