Symposia Topics / Program

The themes we have chosen to highlight during the conference are those that relate to the Darwinian revolution: evolution, biogeography, biodiversity and conservation but we also welcome contributions on any other aspect of the science that relates to the interests of the groups meeting. The meeting will consist of plenary sessions with keynote addresses, and a number of symposia.

The following symposia topics (and organisers) have been put forward as possibilities:
