Invasion Genetics: The Baker and Stebbins Legacy Symposium


Invasion Genetics: The Baker and Stebbins Legacy Symposium|
13-15 August 2014
A symposium at Asilomar, CA (USA)


Mark the 50th anniversary of one of the most important books in evolutionary biology: The Genetics of Colonizing Species (1965).

This classic volume was based on a symposium at Asilomar, California in 1964 and initiated the study of the genetics and evolution of invasive species.

To revisit the historical legacy of the meeting and book, we are pleased to announce a symposium at Asilomar from August 13-15, 2014.

Registration Fees are as follows:
On-Site Faculty & Student/Post Doc $400
Early Bird On-Site Student/Post Doc $250

(We have a very limited number of these early bird student/post doc rate registrations available, so please register early to avoid disappointment)

Registration Deadline 14 July 2014
