Journal Club

 

Come along to our journal club discussing papers in evolutionary ecology (broadly speaking). On this page you will find the topics and of the upcoming and the past discussions – are you keen to join and put in your two cents?

We are usually meeting at the orange pony café (at 13-H-36). Next time on Friday at 10:30.
