What is TREE?

The Three Rivers Evolution Event (TREE) is a conference sponsored by SMBE and ASN that aims to bring together researchers from Western Pennsylvania and the surrounding areas to share and discuss research in all aspects of evolutionary biology. The research of attending members is expected to span viruses, microbes, plants, invertebrates and vertebrates, and include ecology, anthropology, epidemiology, developmental biology, zoology, theoretical, applied, urban ecology, paleontology, and many other specialized research areas. Researchers of all stages, institutional affiliations, and related fields (including ecologists, anthropologists, paleontologists, and similar fields) are welcome to present. We are excited at the diversity of current registrants, which as of this writing includes 104 scientists from 33 institutions, and 71 submitted abstracts!

When and Where: Saturday, September 9th, 2017 at the University of Pittsburgh.
