Program

Evolutionary biology is a vibrant field with a theoretical framework that itself evolves. The Evolution Evolving conference will focus on some emerging themes in the relationship between development and evolution. Topics include the evolutionary causes and consequences of developmental bias, plasticity, niche construction and extra-genetic inheritance – all of which contribute to an understanding of evolvability. The conference will feature a balanced program of talks and poster sessions spanning three days, and be a mix of empirical and theoretical work, as well as contributions to the history and philosophy of evolutionary biology.

 

NEW! Videos of six plenary talks are now available to watch on the Extended Evolutionary Synthesis website and as a YouTube playlist. Videos are of: Renee Duckworth, Alan C Love, Joanna Masel, Armin Moczek, Angela Potochnik and Sean Rice.
