CBD-members organise symposia at ESEB 2017 (16.11.2016)
CBD will be involved in the organisation of two symposia on the 2017 Congress of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology in Groningen in the Netherlands (20-25 august 2017). Joost Raeymaekers will co-organise a symposium on “Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics” (S24). This symposium aim to advance conceptual understanding of eco-evolutionary dynamics in coevolution, speciation and life-history evolution. The second symposium is on “Adaptation to global climate change” (S26) and is co-organised by Irja Ratikainen. The aim is to identify ways that they can be most effectively combined to strengthen conclusions about drivers of changing biodiversity and adaptations at multiple spatial and temporal scales.
