Warsaw Seminar Series in Ecology & Evolution

Together with Dr Magdalena Niedziałkowska from the Mammal Research Institute PAS Białowieża, the Wild Urban Evolution & Ecology Lab is organising a series of seminars in ecology and evolution. The seminars are held monthly and throughout the academic year, usually every 2nd Wednesday of each month at 1pm (with some rare exceptions!). Everyone is welcome!

March and April seminars are respectively co-hosted by Dr Barbara Pietrzak and Dr Anna Karnkowska (Faculty of Biology, University of Warsaw).

Note: additional seminars may appear outside of the regular schedule outlined above.

Update: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all seminars from April onwards have been cancelled.
