The UW-Madison Department of Forest & Wildlife Ecology (FWE) is pleased to announce we are continuing our weekly webinar series throughout the Spring 2021 semester. The “live” webinar events will be held on Fridays, from 3:00-4:00pm CST (unless otherwise noted), and recordings of the webinars will be posted after the “live” events. Webinars are free and open to the public.

The Spring 2021 FWE Webinar Series will kickoff on February 12th with a presentation by Dr. Markus Brauer, a professor in the Department of Psychology at UW-Madison and internationally-recognized expert in human social behavior, particularly on issues pertaining to diversity and inclusion, dynamics of group work, and interventions to bring about positive changes in human behaviors. Following Dr. Brauer’s talk, we have an impressive line-up of scientists who are leaders in Forest and Wildlife Ecology. See below for the full Spring 2021 FWE Webinar schedule, and to register for the webinars.
