Evolution in Africa everyday

Academic year 2016/17 Because I will be in Cameroon till 15th of December 2016, any change of the seminar's program will be presented directly on our Institute web page here. The program presented below was updated on 2nd November 2016.

SEMINARS ON EVOLUTION, ECOLOGY & BEHAVIOUR (earlier so called ZEBinars) are organized by three units of our faculty: Dept. of Behavioral Ecology, Laboratory of Evolutionary Biology and Laboratory of Evolutionary Ecology.

Seminars are organized typically on Wednesdays (12:15) in room Mała Aula, with some exceptions, from time to time.

Organizers: Tomasz Osiejuk, Jacek Radwan and Lechosław Kuczyński
