Seminar Series


The seminars are held at the CBG where faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, staff, and visitors get together to share novel research about biodiversity at all biological levels, from genes to ecosystems. As the CBG is the birthplace of DNA barcoding, the Biodiversity Seminar Series often focuses on this theme, including new discoveries, discussions on its utility, and novel uses in other research areas. We hope that the discussion of ideas from both within and outside the Centre will foster collaborative thought and challenge conventional ways of thinking.

If you are a faculty member, postdoctoral fellow, graduate student, or visiting researcher and are interested in sharing your research in a 30-45 minute presentation at the Biodiversity Seminar Series please contact one of the coordinators listed below.

We accept submissions for talks on an ongoing basis.
