This week we will discuss a paper on patterns of opercle shape evolution in a cichlid radiation by Wilson et al. which use geometric morphometrics and the comparative methods to draw some interesting conclusions.
Have you ever wondered what Horizon 2020 is all about? And what are Societal Challenges? And whether that is something for you? Now is the time to get answers to all these questions!
This week we'll discuss a recent paper in Systematic Biology on the use of the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck Model to investigate patterns of adaptive evolution in phylogenies.
Friday, corner room @11 as usual.
This week we will discuss a paper on transposable elements as agents of rapid adaptation may explain the genetic paradox of invasive species that was recently published in Molecular Ecology by Stapley and colleagues.
This Friday 27th of November, we will read a paper by Cantalapiedra et al. 2015: "Congruent phylogenetic and fossil signatures of mammalian diversification dynamics driven by Tertiary abiotic change."
This week we will discuss a paper by Lamichhaney and colleagues recently published in Nature Genetics. The study addresses the genomic architecture explaining the striking morphological and behavioural polymorphism seen among three distinctive male morphs of the lekking wader Ruff.
This week we will discuss a paper on how structural variation such as copy number variation can tell a different story than SNPs. This study by Sudmant and coworkers was recently published in Science. Please note that we have changed the time to 11:30 this time too!
CEES Extra seminar by Laura Nuño de la Rosa
Late Lunch Talk by Ole Kristian Tørresen, Lex Nederbragt, with others from the cod genomics team
Friday seminar by Marius Roesti from University of Basel (Switzerland) and University of British Columbia (Canada)
Welcome back! This Friday 13th of November, we will read a paper by Zelditch et al. 2015 "Relationships of diversity, disparity,and their evolutionary rates in squirrels (Sciuridae)".
This week we will discuss a paper on how a novel prey life history leads to sympatric divergence in a predator species that was recently published in Nature Communications by Brodersen and colleagues. This will bring some ecology back to the journal club after some more molecular papers!
Late Lunch Talk by Alexander Suh from the Uppsala University, Sweden
This week we will discuss a paper from MBE 2014 by Simon Martin and collaborators. The study evaluates the use of different statistical methods for detecting introgression and applies these to data on the heliconius butterfly complex.

Friday seminar by Claudia V. López-Alfaro
This week we will discuss a paper by Der Sarkissian and co-authors recently published in Current Biology on horse evolutionary genomics with many interesting genomic analysis methods.
We are back! In journal club this week, we will read a paper by Moen et al. in Systematic Biology from this year "Testing Convergence versus History: Convergence Dominates Phenotypic Evolution for Over 150 Million Years in Frogs".
CEES Extra seminar by Matthew A. Wund, The College of New Jersey, USA
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.
