The excitement is in the air with the start of the GENOMES TO BIOMES Conference, which is the first-ever joint meeting of three of Canada's primier natural history societies, the Canadian Society of Ecology and Evolution, the Canadian Society of Zoology and the Society of Canadian Limnologists.
At this meeting, 8 parallel sessions of talks spanning a large breadth of subjects, including ecology of biological invasions to evolutionary genetics. These talks will occur along with symposia of invited speakers. Today's (Monday) morning symposium is the CSEE Symposium on Biodiversity change across spatial scales during the anthropocene. In the afternoon will be the CSEE Symposium on effects of community diversity and composition on evolutionary change.
Before commenting further on commentary of the conference itself, all of us in the Hendry Lab would like to get the shameless self promotion out of the way and encourage you to come to our presentations!!!
11:45 - On the ecological relevance of specialist parasites: Lessons from guppies and Gyrodactylus
14:15 - (Non)parallelism in lake-stream stickleback: Plastic, genetic, or both?
See you at the talks!
