UF Campus Biodiversity Symposium

Lake Alice Thursday, March 10, 2:00 – 4:00 pm

Reitz Union Meeting Room G320 (ground floor)

If you are currently working, studying, or have an interest in the field of Biodiversity, the Office of Sustainability and the Biodiversity Institute are excited to invite you to join our first campus-wide UF Campus Biodiversity Symposium!

The goals of the Symposium are to bring together faculty, staff and students to:

  • Share knowledge and compile existing information about on-campus biodiversity
  • Discuss ways to identify and catalog biodiversity on UF’s campus, such as creating a central database for courses, student groups and others to catalog species on campus
  • Foster collaborations among researchers working in areas related to biodiversity studies
  • Explore links between on-campus and larger scale biodiversity research
  • Identify opportunities for further support, networking and knowledge-sharing

To accomplish these goals, we will host small group discussions around a variety of topics ranging from local to global biodiversity and the connections between them, followed by a larger group discussion of some of the key points raised within those conversations.

Please RSVP through the online form HERE

Please contact Liz Storn, 352-392-7578 with any questions.

Our tentative agenda is:

  • 2:00-2:15 – Introduction
  • 2:15-3:15 – 5 rounds of guided small-group discussions
  • 3:15-3:30 – Summary and large-group discussion
  • 3:30-4:00 – Networking and follow-up from the large group discussion

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
