|SYMP 18 - SYMP 18 - The Ecological Consequences of Intraspecific Variation|
| Wednesday, August 4, 2010|
|No population is homogeneous. Can ecologists safely ignore intraspecific variation? This symposium will synthesize recent conceptual advances in the study of individual variation, highlight the novel insights of recent empirical experiments and observations, and help translate newly developed mathematical theory into testable hypotheses for future empirical study.|
