2014 AGA President's Symposium

SPECIAL SYMPOSIUM ISSUE IN JOURNAL OF HEREDITY
ONLINE MID-DECEMBER 2015

 

A lot has been written on this general theme in the last decade or so, but most people have focused on either evolution or plasticity, not both.  This meeting will encourage contributions that jointly consider the range of adaptive responses populations can make to changes in their ecosystems (and what this means in a practical way to their probability of persistence), as well as contributions that look for patterns or contrasts across different taxa. 

The meeting is expected to be fairly small (150-200), with a single concurrent session, 20-24 talks of mostly 30 minutes each, and lots of posters.  David Reznick from University of California, Riverside will present the Wilhelmine Key lecture as the keynote talk.
