We are organising a mini-symposium about research at the Balcones Canyonlands NWR on the University of Texas--Austin campus for Friday, 25 January 2008, from 2.30 -6.00 p.m. at the Atrium (FAC 419). There will be 15-minute talks followed by general discussion. All researchers are invited to present their projects and we will try to accommodate as many talks as possible. Even if you do not wish to present a talk, please try to attend.
The audience will include several students who are considering doing research or otherwise volunteering at the Refuge. At the end we will retire to the Scholz Beer Garden.
If you wish to present some work, please send me a title as soon as possible (even if it is tentative). In any case, I would like to hear from everyone who plans to come. It will be a great occasion for those working at the Refuge to interact with each other. With luck, it will spur more research across disciplines and universities.
