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discussed some of their papers at the Speciation Journal Club, but they will also discuss some of their latest unpublished research.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.
