Dear all CEES members: We are pleased to invite you to the Annual CEES Conference.
UPDATE: Download the Program (pdf)
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.
Friday seminar by Chris Thomas from Department of Biology, University of York, UK
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".
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.
Late Lunch Talk by Claudia Junge
Last week we read a paper that used Principal Component analysis, so this week we will discuss why this type of analysis can mislead inferences. Friday, 25th : "Comparative Analysis of Principal Components Can be Misleading" Uyeda et al. 2015.
This week we will discuss how Hybridization masks speciation in the evolutionary history of the Galápagos marine iguana by MacLeod et al. (2015, Proc B)
Friday seminar by Anna B. Neuheimer, Department of Oceanography, University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, USA
On Friday the 18th we will be discussing a paper by Duran & Pie (2015): "Tempo and mode of climatic niche evolution in Primates" where they look at niche evolution over macroevolutionary time.
This week we will discuss a study on An early modern human from Romania with a recent Neanderthal ancestor which was recently published in Nature. In the study Fu and colleagues report findings of 6-9% neanderthal DNA in a modern human.
Late Lunch Talk by Chryssa Anastasiadou
This Friday the 11th we will be discussing: "Linking macrotrends and microrates: Re-evaluating microevolutionary support for Cope's rule" where they look at trait changes at microevolutionary scales to test for Cope`s rule.
This week we will discuss a paper by Rolshausen et al. (2015, Evolution) on the the effects of gene flow on selection.
Late Lunch Talk by Anna Runemark and Michael Matschiner
This Friday the 4th we will be discussing: "Fitness of multidimensional phenotypes in dynamic adaptive landscapes", on how dynamic adaptive landscapes link phenotypes to fitness across environments.
A short introduction will be given by Solveig Kristensen, Professor and Vice Dean at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
Integrating Ecology and Evolution: From ecology to micro- and macroevolution. Registration necessary.
Macroevolution journal club is back and on Friday the 28th we will be discussing: "The adaptive landscape as a conceptual bridge between micro- and macroevolution", a review by Arnold et al. (2001).
Early Lunch Talk by Katie Dean
This Friday we will be discussing: "Iterative adaptive radiations of fossil canids show no evidence for diversity-dependent trait evolution" by Slater 2015. The paper is a part of the Special issue: "The future of the fossil record: Paleontology in the 21st century."
Late Lunch Talk by Michael Garratt from the University of Reading, UK
Friday seminar by Matthew Burgess from University of California, Santa Barbara (US)
This week, we discuss: "Age-Dependent Speciation Can Explain the Shape of Empirical Phylogenies" by Hagen et al. 2015, as a follow-up to last week's discussion.
