Recent work has highlighted the importance of including individual heterogeneity into population models. This includes both traits that are fixed over the lifespan of an individual (e.g. morphology, genotype) and characteristics that change over time (e.g. age, body conditions). How influential such traits are for individual fitness (and population dynamics), may however depend on sex.

Differences between individuals can be large and have profound consequences for the dynamics of populations. Even if such differences have unknown causes and/or are unobservable, they can be incorporated into population models, allowing to assess their impacts on population-level patterns.

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discussed some of their papers at the Speciation Journal Club, but they will also discuss some of their latest unpublished research.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