BAY AREA BIOSYSTEMATISTS (BABS) MEETING
Thursday evening, 25 October 2012
at UC Davis, 2346 Storer Hall (lecture in 1322 Storer Hall)
“PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF SPECIES INTERACTIONS”
Species interactions, from predation to symbiosis, play an important role in shaping the evolutionary histories of focal taxa. Therefore, it is essential that analyses of such interactions be conducted in a phylogenetic framework. Join us for two stimulating talks on this topic, along with plenty of discussion, leavened by pizza and beer.
Featuring presentations by…
D. LUKE MAHLER, Postdoctoral Fellow, UC Davis
Ecology and Macroevolution in Island Lizards: Have Species
Interactions Left a Mark on Phylogenetic Patterns of Trait Evolution in Anolis?
SANTIAGO RAMIREZ, new faculty member in Evolution & Ecology, UC Davis
Phylogenetic, Comparative, and Genomic Approaches for Studying Coevolution in a Plant-Pollinator Mutualism
Schedule and venue:
5:30 pm: social gathering with beverages (beer and soft drinks) and informal pizza dinner: cost ca. $10, to be collected at door, 2346 Storer Hall, UC Davis campus.
7:00 – 9:00 pm: talks, followed by discussion, in 1322 Storer Hall (1st floor lecture auditorium).
Reservations required for beverages and dinner (but not the talk). Please email reservations to Phil Ward firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, October 23
