Welcome! EarthWeek (April 7-11, 2015) is a joint conference organized each spring by graduate students in the UA School of Earth and Environmental Sciences (SEES), and includes research symposia hosted by the five SEES departments. In addition to student presentations, individual department symposia include presentations by UA faculty and invited keynote speakers, luncheons, field trips, alumni gatherings, and award ceremonies.

The University of Arizona’s EarthWeek 2015 is privileged to welcome Dr. James Collins of Arizona State University, Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability as this year’s distinguished Plenary Speaker.  

Dr. Collins received his B.S. from Manhattan College in 1969 and his Ph.D. from The University of Michigan in 1975. He then moved to Arizona State University where he is currently Virginia M. Ullman Professor of Natural History and the Environment in the School of Life Sciences. From 1989 to 2002 he was Chairman of the Zoology Department where he used interdisciplinary programs to foster innovation in research, education, and institutional change.  Dr. Collins' research centers on understanding the origin, maintenance, and reorganization of morphological variation within species.  A recent research focus is host-pathogen biology as a driver of population dynamics and species extinctions.  The intellectual and institutional factors that have shaped Ecology's development as a science are another component of Dr. Collins's research, as is the emerging research area of ecological ethics.  ASU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences awarded him the Distinguished Faculty Award in 2003 and the Gary Krahenbuhl Difference Maker award in 2005.

This year's plenary theme is Linking the spheres of our dynamic Earth and will draw from all SEES disciplines to explore the interaction and interplay between different Earth systems and their consequences. Does your work connect multiple disciplines or are your findings applicable to other fields of Earth sciences? If so, we want to hear from you! Tell us how you “link the spheres."
