Each year the Population Biology Graduate Group holds a student symposium, named Proutfest (for Timothy Prout, of UC Davis entomology). The Pop Bio grad group explores incredibly diverse topics, from convergent evolution of terrestriality in crabs to theoretical ecology modelers to evo-devo entomologists. First years introduce their previous work (shark saw, anyone?) and a baby picture. It makes for a dynamic and fun day–highlights at #Proutfest2016!
