Next week EXEB will co-organize a Minisymposium together with The Pheromone Group at the Biology Department in Lund entitled "Entomology Futures", which will focus on insect ecology and evolution.
This symposium is organized in conjunction with the visit by Dr. Niklas Wahlberg from University of Turkku in Finland to our department. Wahlberg is a leading phylogeneticist and systematist who mainly works on butterflies, but has broad ranging research interests in evolutionary biology and entomology.
The symposium is open for everyone interested, although the locality is small and can only take 20-25 attendants, meaning that you should aim to arrive early.
When: Wednesday March 5 2014, 14.00-16.00
Where: Seminar room "Tanken", 1st floor, Ecology Building
14.00 - 14.30 Niklas Wahlberg: The 215 million years of Lepidoptera diversification: lessons from an ever changing world
14.30 - 15.00 Jadranka Rota: Behavioural ecology and systematics of metalmark moths (Lepidoptera: Choreutidae)
15.00 - 15.20 Coffee break
15.20 - 15.40 Machteld Verzijden: Courtship and mate preference functions are jointly shaped by geographic variation in developmental plasticity and interspecific interactions
15.40 - 16.00 Jessica Abbott: G x E effects of diet on male fitness in Drosophila melanogaster: phenotypic plasticity, or genetic robustness?
