Prominent ecologist to speak on campus

March 25, 2009

The Center for Limnology has announced that Jim Collins, assistant director of biological sciences at the National Science Foundation and professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Arizona State University, will give the 2009 Kaeser Scholar Lecture at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 2, in 145 Birge Hall

The title of Collins’ lecture is “One Biology, One Science: A Vision for 21st Century Biology.” The event is free and open to the public, and a light reception will follow.

The annual Kaeser Visiting Scholar is selected by Center for Limnology graduate students and supported by an endowment established by the family of William V. Kaeser, the architect who designed the Center for Limnology in the early 1960s. The program was established to facilitate interactions among UW-Madison limnology students and prominent ecologists from other institutions.
