This is the home page of the UConn EEB department's Systematics Seminar. This is a graduate seminar devoted to issues of interest to graduate students and faculty who make up the systematics program at the University of Connecticut.
This (Spring, 2007) semester, we are meeting each Tuesday at 4pm in the BioPharm 3rd. floor "fishbowl" conference room.
