Three Rivers Evolution Event 2017

The first annual Three Rivers Evolutionary Event (TREE) aims to bring together researchers from the areas surrounding Pittsburgh, PA in the common interest of discussing evolution.

TREE is intended to promote the study of evolution in the broadest sense, including observational and experimental studies under natural and controlled conditions. The research of attending members is expected to span viruses, microbes, plants, invertebrates and vertebrates, and include anthropology, epidemiology, developmental biology, ecology, zoology, theoretical, applied, urban ecology, paleontology, and many other specialized research areas.

Individuals from all backgrounds are welcome, and early-career researchers are encouraged to present.
