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!

"Why'd you do it?"

One of the great benefits of academic life is that we are, to some degree, in control of our own time schedule. Sure, there are classes to t...
