We would like to invite you to send abstracts to our symposium on
"Unifying paleobiological and comparative perspectives on character
evolution" for the 14th ESEB congress in Lisbon taking place 19-24th of
Deadline for submission has been extended to 8 March 2013.
Organizers: Lee Hsiang Liow & Thomas F. Hansen. University of Oslo,
Department of Biology, CEES.
Invited speakers: Gene Hunt and Folmer Bokma.
Summary: It is no longer debated that the fossil record is necessary to
inform us about the history of life, yet the integration of data and
perspectives using fossils and comparative data in understanding
evolution is far from mature. This symposium gathers researchers
straddling the realms of the extinct and the extant to explore how we
can better understand evolutionary processes especially on time scales
common to palaeobiological and phylogenetic comparative studies, using
character evolution as a focal point.
