7 January, 2013
Registration is now open for the XIV Congress of the European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB), to be held in Lisbon from the 19-24 of August 2013.
We are happy to announce the symposium:
NEW DIRECTIONS IN SEX ROLE RESEARCH
1. Professor Hanna Kokko, Australian National University, Canberra (http://biology.anu.edu.au/hanna_kokko/) Title of talk: “Do all interesting predictions of sexual selection theory really hold? ”
2. Professor Larry J Young, Emory University, Atlanta (http://www.yerkes.emory.edu/research/divisions/behavioral_neuroscience/young_larry.html) Title of talk: “Neuropeptides, social bonding and sex roles”
The evolution of sex roles is a core area in evolutionary biology linking life history and sexual selection theory to neuro-genomic causes of sex roles. Recent advances have provided fresh insights into sex roles in numerous marine and terrestrial animals. Our symposium focuses on current advances in this field, taking advantage of recent theoretical, experimental and phylogenetic analyses.
2. Professor Michael Jennions, Australian National University, Canberra (http://biology.anu.edu.au/Michael_Jennions/)
To register and submit your abstract for this symposium, please follow the instructions on the congress website (https://eseb2013.com/).
We look forward to hearing from you, and hope to see you in Lisbon next year!
