We meet at 12:00 noon on Fridays in Biodiversity room 224 (the big meeting room on the second floor). Our purpose is to discuss recent research papers in evolutionary biology.

All graduate students, postdocs, and faculty interested in evolutionary biology are welcome. Feel free to bring your lunch.
