CBD Lecture series

CBD invites excellent researchers from all over the world to visit us and talk about interesting topics in ecology and evolution. The CBD lectures are open for all and we welcome all students and employees of NTNU and other interested people. If anyone would like to meet with any of the guests, you may contact the organizing committee (kate.l.matthews@ntnu.no) and we will schedule a time for you.

Schedule for the CBD Lecture series can be found here

The BEEhive (Journal Club)

The BEEhive is a journal club where we meet every second Monday at 12:00 to discuss papers within the topics: Behavioural ecology, Evolution, and Ecology.  All are welcome, and feel free to propose paper to discuss by contacting one of the administrators of BEEhive, Maja Tarka or Sebastian Wacker.

R seminars

The R-Seminar is held the first Tuesday in each month from 13:00 to 14:00. It is an arena for sharing experiences and solutions to everyday problems using tools in the R statistical software. Everyone are welcome to join and contribute, remember to subscribe to receive e-mails about these seminars.
Subscription: Send an e-mail to Peter S. Ranke

Other events

Workshop in population modelling
CBD will organize two workshops in two consecutive weeks from 28th of August to 8th of September. “Stochastic population dynamics” will be given by members of CBD and “Bayesian integrated population modeling (IPM) using JAGS” will be given by Michael Schaub and Marc Kéry. These two workshops may jointly be taken as a 7.5 credits PhD-course at NTNU. External participants are welcome to apply for one or two of the workshops as well as the PhD-course. Details about the workshop can be found here.

How do we decide what to measure?
A workshop on measurement practice in life sciences and medicine at CBD, Organized by David Houle (FSU) and Christophe Pélabon (CBD) at CBD 7th to 9th of June 2017.Download the WorkShop Programme here.

Symposia at ESEB organised by CBD-members

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). The first symposium is on “Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics” (S24), and is co-organised by Joost Raeymaekers. This symposium will provide a platform to present and discuss new mechanistic, empirical and theoretical insights into eco-(co)evolutionary feedback loops, and aims 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. Current global climate change is leading to a warmer, but also more variable world. A central objective in modern evolutionary biology is to understand how such spatial and temporal variability affect key evolutionary changes including the potential for evolutionary rescue from climate change-induced declines. This symposium will bring together researchers addressing these topics from diverse theoretical and empirical perspectives, and aims 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.
