Division of Ecology & Evolution (DEE): 2004 Fall Newsletter

Message from the Chair Mary Alice Coffroth, Secretary Michael Temkin and Program Officer Emily Carrington

Greeting from the DEE officers: We hope that you all have had a productive summer and that the start of classes has gone smoothly.

We are looking forward to an exciting meeting in San Diego in January. This year DEE is co-sponsoring four symposia:
  • 1) Desiccation, and Tolerance in Animals, Microbes, and Plants: Comparative Mechanisms and Evolution

  • 2) Complex Life-histories in Marine Benthic Invertebrates: A Symposium in Memory of Larry McEdward

  • 3) The New Microscopy: Toward a Phylogenetic Synthesis

  • 4) Mating Systems and Sexual Selection in Hermaphrodites
In addition, we will again be having a joint social with DIZ and AMS. Be sure to check the meeting schedule for the time and place. The social is always a great place to catch up with old friends and make new ones. Hope to see you there.

This meeting will also mark the end of Mary Alice's term as chair and Mike's term as Secretary. We are please to have Fred Janzen as the DEE Chair-Elect and Anthony Steyermark as the newly elected DEE Secretary. They will officially assume their offices at the end of the meeting. Be sure to attend our business meeting - again, check the meeting schedule for the time and place.

As always we will be contacting you in the near future to ask if you would be willing to serve as a judge for the best student paper and poster competitions. We have had a great response from the members of the division for the last two years. Consequently, people have had to judge at most three presentations, and we have tried to match presentations with judges' areas of interest. So, please seriously consider serving as a judge for the student presentation at the next SICB meeting in San Diego.
