Dear all CEES members: We are pleased to invite you to the Annual CEES Conference.

UPDATE: Download the Program (pdf)

Time and place: Oct. 8, 2015 12:00 PM1:00 PM, The Aquarium

This week we will discuss a paper on how hybridization may boost adaptive radiations in sticklebacks. The paper is authored by Roy and co-authors and is available from the recently accepted papers section in Molecular Ecology.

Time and place: Oct. 2, 2015 2:15 PM3:00 PM, Seminar room 3508

Friday seminar by Chris Thomas from Department of Biology, University of York, UK

Time and place: Oct. 2, 2015 11:00 AM12:00 PM, Room 3513

The Ordovician crew is in town and we plan to capitalize on their knowledge. In journal club this week, we will read a paper by Hughes et al. in PNAS from 2013  "Clades reach highest morphological disparity early in their evolution". 

Time and place: Oct. 1, 2015 12:00 PM1:00 PM, The Aquarium

This week we will discuss a paper on how chromosomal rearrangements and hybridization between two yeast lineages drive hybrid speciation after secondary contact. The paper is authored by Leducq and co-authors and is available from BioRxiv, a bit fresher than most papers we read and hopefully with plenty of scope for discussion.

Time and place: Sep. 28, 2015 2:15 PM3:00 PM, CEES seminar room (3313/3315)
