What do PBIO grad students do on Spring Break? They host a regional conference! Uma Nagendra and Jeffery Cannon led a group of graduate students to host the Southeastern Ecology and Evolution Conference (SEEC) at UGA this past March. The conference brought 225 early career researchers from over 40 institutions to UGA for presentations and posters, as well as a plenary, career panel, field trip, and trivia. Attendees practiced effective science communication with new "rapid research talks" and a lunchtime workshop.
