2022 Joint Annual Meeting
For more information on registration rates, housing options, and more, visit the Joint Annual Meeting website.
This symposium will feature a selection of graduate students near the end of their masters or doctoral programs to showcase their research with greater depth than the standard 10-minute student competition allows. The symposium will feature a total of eight speakers, four from ESA and four from ESC.
This juried symposium is open to submissions from ESA, ESC, and ESBC Student Transition and Early Career/Early Professional members. Four presenters will be selected, one representing each ESA Section, to give a 30-minute feature presentation describing their research programs in this special symposium.
Zoom is an excellent tool, not only for video meetings and webinars but also for recording video presentations to groups or individuals. With a free Zoom account, you can initiate a Zoom meeting without any other participants, and you still have all of Zoom’s presentation tools at your disposal, as well as the ability to record. Zoom has tools that make screen sharing, recording, and annotations simple.
Three Brothers in Biology: Bugs, Birds, Books, Conservation, and Politics
The Cannings brothers – Rob, Syd, and Dick – have a long history as biologists in Canada. Growing up in the diverse habitats of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, they immersed themselves in birds and insects, botany and geology. Their careers have taken them all over the world but their hearts are in Canada, where they have worked in nature interpretation, parks development, museum collections and research, conservation biology and, in Dick’s case, even national politics.
This plenary session will provide diverse and international Indigenous perspectives relevant to modern scientific inquiry and will include an open reading by poet and evolutionary biologist Brandon Kilbourne.
Michael Blackstock will present “Blue Ecology: climate change from an Indigenous water perspective". Michael is an Independent Indigenous Scholar from the Gitxsan Nation who will share Elder's teachings on water, and how that knowledge can provide a fresh perspective on climate change.
