Colloquium Four Reading Group

This is a journal club for reading about and discussing subject matters close to the heart of the CEES Colloquium 4. It uses the time slot that was used for a Macroevolution reading group and might be attended by many who used to attend Maecovo, but is not to be confused with that. Please subscribe to the mailing list to get updates about upcoming discussions and papers or to initiate discussions with others on the list.  

This journal is currently scheduled to run on Fridays at 11 am.

Lee Hsiang Liow, Olja Toljagic, Kjetil Voje and Jostein Starrfelt are the current caretakers of this journal club.
