The Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior invites you to an evening of fast-paced “lightning talks” that explore the influence of classic research by noted researchers from the University of Minnesota. Current faculty will trace lines between research by Ecology, Evolution and Behavior greats Raymond Lindeman, Margaret Davis, Eville Gorham and others that has since led to exciting or unanticipated applications, policies and insights.
