Evolution 2012: Ottawa

Evolution 2012 is coming to Ottawa!  It promises to be utter mayhem — up to 18 parallel sessions at any given time.  The Hendry Lab will be there in force; to help you watch every one of our talks (you know you want to!) here they are, assembled in one place:

Eco-evolutionary dynamics: How ecological and evolutionary process influence one another.  CSEE-sponsored symposium.  Organizers: Andrew Hendry (McGill) and Dolph Schluter (UBC).  Sunday July 8, 1:15 - 4:45, Canada Hall 2-3.  (Andrew Hendry will introduce the symposium from 1:15 - 1:45).

Linking macro-theories with micro-rates: micro-evolutionary support for Cope's rule?
Kiyoko Gotanda, Cristián Correa, Martin Turcotte, Andrew Hendry.  Monday July 9th, 8:45 - 9:00, Room 204.  (Kiyoko and Cristián are both PhD students in the lab.)

Hybridization between genetically-modified Atlantic salmon and wild brown trout results in novel ecological interactions and potential genetic introgression.  Krista Oke, Peter Westley, Darek Moreau, Ian Fleming.  Saturday July 7, 9:30 - 9:45, Room 213.  (Krista is a PhD student in the lab.)

Solving the paradox of stasis: Stabilizing selection and the limits of detection.  Ben Haller, Andrew Hendry.  Sunday July 8th, 4:00 - 4:15, Room 204.  (Ben is a PhD student in the lab.)

The balance between selection and gene flow evaluated in threespine stickleback.  Shahin Muttalib and Andrew Hendry.  Saturday July 7, 3:30 - 3:45, Room 202.  (Shahin is a Master's student in the lab.)

  Hendry Lab in the house, y'all!
  And there are a bunch more talks by people associated with the lab:

The evolution of habitat preference in ecological speciation.  Xavier Thibert-PlanteDaniel Berner.  Monday July 9, 2:15 - 2:30, Room 206.  (Both are lab alumni.)

Rapid evolution of parasite resistance under enemy release in a Guppy-Gyrodactylus host-parasite system.  Felipe Dargent, Marilyn Scott, Andrew Hendry, Gregor Fussmann.  Monday July 9, 1:30 - 1:45, Room 208.  (Felipe is co-supervised by Andrew).

Exploring anthropogenic vs. natural influences on the evolution of Darwin's finches.  Joost RaeymaekersLuis Fernando De León, Jaime Chaves, Jeffrey Podos, Andrew Hendry, Karl Cottenie.  Sunday July 8, 4:15 - 4:30, Room 201.  (Joost and Luis are both lab alumni.)

Genome divergence during evolutionary diversification in replicate lake-stream stickleback population pairs.  Marius Roesti, Andrew Hendry, Walter Salzburger, Daniel Berner.  Tuesday July 10, 9:45 - 10:00, Room 207.  (Daniel is a lab alumnus.)

Spatiotemporal divergence of threespine stickleback in a dynamic natural system - Lake Myvatn, Iceland.  Katja Räsänen, Antoine Millet, Arni Einarsson, Bjarni Kristjansson.  Monday July 9, 11:45 - 12:00, Room 204.  (Katja is a lab alumna.)

When continents divide: Comparative phylogeography of reef fishes from the Red Sea and Indian Ocean.  Joseph DiBattista, Michael Berumen, Michelle Gaither, Luiz Rocha, Derek Skillings, Brian Bowen.  Saturday July 7, 3:15 - 3:30, Room 210.  (Joseph is a lab alumnus.)

  I think that might be just about it.  Sheesh.  Times/rooms are subject to change, of course, so check the schedule to avoid getting tears in your beer later.  And if you're giving a talk at the conference related to eco-evolutionary dynamics, post it in the comments!  See you in Ottawa!

A 25-year quest for the Holy Grail of evolutionary biology

When I started my postdoc in 1998, I think it is safe to say that the Holy Grail (or maybe Rosetta Stone) for many evolutionary biologists w...
