The UW-Madison Plant Sciences Graduate Student Council hosted the 6th Annual Plant Sciences Symposium Symposium titled Turning a New Leaf in Plant Ecology and Evolution on Friday, November 4, 2016. The event was held in the H.F. Deluca Forum at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery at UW-Madison and was also available via online webinar for those unable to attend in person. The symposium featured talks from five accomplished and dynamic scientists, as well as two graduate student talks. See a complete schedule and speaker descriptions in our program.
Although the Plant Sciences Symposium is a student-run event, we would not be able to accomplish it without help from many others. Funding was graciously provided by DuPoint Pioneer, Simplot, Ball Horticultural Company, Valent U.S.A. Corporation, the Associated Students of Madison, and the Wisconsin Experience Grant. This symposium is part of the DuPont Plant Sciences Symposia Series, which includes plant sciences symposia at universities in six countries and five continents. We would also like to acknowledge the support of the faculty in our various departments. Lastly, we would like to extend our gratitude to Greg Wimmer at Greg’s Graphic Art for his excellent work designing the symposium materials.
