In celebration of their 101 years of research, Lyon Arboretum is hosting their second annual symposium, with the theme “Exploring Diversity in our Backyard: Nā Maka O Ka ‘Āina A Me Ke Kai.”
- Date: October 18, 2019
- Time: 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
- Location: Campus Center Ballroom, UHM campus
The symposium will showcase undergraduate and graduate research conducted at the Arboretum and throughout UH Mānoa. The focus this year will be exploring the bounty of diversity found in the Hawaiian archipelago.
The organizers are calling for proposals for oral presentations and posters that investigate the myriad relationships between organisms and their environment, examine evolution through an understanding of native species’ biogeography and systematics, or celebrate the culture of the Islands. Abstract submissions are now open, closing September 8. You can submit abstracts here.
Not only will you get to hear about lots of amazing new studies and initiatives and interact with dedicated and passionate researchers in the field; there will also be a $100 prize for the best oral and poster presentations, so don’t miss the chance to participate!
