MSc Addisu Mekonnen Kassie at the Department of Biosciences will give a trial lecture on the given topic: Discuss the potential role of behavioural flexibility in how primates deal with habitat disturbance and how does this potential vary among species
MSc Addisu Mekonnen Kassie at the Department of Biosciences will be defending the thesis Effects of habitat fragmentation and degradation on Bale monkeys (Chlorocebus djamdjamensis) in southern Ethiopia: Integrating ecology, behaviour and population genetics for the degree of PhD.
Stage structure is fundamental in quantitative population models, but there are different approaches to deal with stage duration and individual-/cohort variation therein.

Recent work has highlighted the importance of including individual heterogeneity into population models. This includes both traits that are fixed over the lifespan of an individual (e.g. morphology, genotype) and characteristics that change over time (e.g. age, body conditions). How influential such traits are for individual fitness (and population dynamics), may however depend on sex.
Integral projection models (IPMs) are population models structured by continuous traits such as body size, and have risen in popularity over the last decade. While most perturbation analyses developed for matrix models can be applied, additional considerations are necessary when working with IPMs.

Differences between individuals can be large and have profound consequences for the dynamics of populations. Even if such differences have unknown causes and/or are unobservable, they can be incorporated into population models, allowing to assess their impacts on population-level patterns.
Friday, February 2nd, we will discuss a recent paper by Rolland et al (2018): The impact of endothermy on the climatic niche evolution and the distribution of vertebrate diversity
The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters is hosting the International Polar Ocean Day, with the topic "An earth system perspective on Norwegian polar research". Open for all.
By Prof. Jinfeng Wang, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China.
Friday, January 19th, we will discuss a recent paper by Peiman and Robinson (2017): Comparative Analyses of Phenotypic Trait Covariation within and among Populations
By Dr.phil. Christoph Gradmann, Professor at the Department of Community Medicine and Global Health, University of Oslo.
This Thursday, there will be no Speciation Journal Club, instead, we all welcome you to a full day of hybridization and speciation! A symposium supported by IBV, CEES and EVOGENE.
The symposium will feature two prominent young researchers in the field, Joana Meier (University of Bern, Switzerland) & Mario Vallejo-Marin (University of Stirling, UK). We have previously discussed some of their papers at the Speciation Journal Club, but they will also discuss some of their latest unpublished research.
If you wish to meet with Joana or Mario on friday, please contact me or one of the other organizers.
We are happy to announce that on Thursday 14th December, we will be hosting a symposium on Hybridization: causes and consequences for speciation at the Department for Biosciences, University of Oslo. The symposium will be held in Bikuben on the first floor of Kristine Bonnevies Hus. UiO Blindern Campus. Two prominent young researchers in the field, Joana Meier (University of Bern, Switzerland) & Mario Vallejo-Marin (University of Stirling, UK) are featured as invited speakers.
