CeMEB Advanced Course 2015: Marine evolution under climate change

Warning message

The start date of this training opportunity has already passed

General information

What determines species-sensitivity to future environmental stressors and how does it relates to species recent evolutionary history? What life-history strategies will be selected in future ocean? How can we assess a species adaptation potential? What is the role of phenotypic plasticity in species resilience? What will be evolutionary rules in future oceans? What is the role of ecological interactions in future ecosystem changes?

The Linnaeus Centre for Marine Evolutionary (CeMEB) invite PhD students and postdocs from all over the world to gather for one week in a stimulating environment to discuss how climate change (including global warming, ocean acidification, hypoxia) affects evolutionary rules that shape ocean ecosystem structure. Dowload the flyer.

The course is organised by Dr Sam Dupont (CeMEB) and Dr. Piero Calosi (Université du Québec à Rimouski-UQAR). Teachers from the CeMEB team will also participate.

Objective:

The most important aims with this course is to train young researchers in state-of-the-art research in marine climate change research with a special focus on evolutionary biology, to share theoretical and experiment approaches and to create new professional contacts among the participants.
