SEMINAR(i) 9/6/2016: DISPERSAL ECOLOGY AND INVASION BIOLOGY

30/05/16

WHO?: Dr. ANDREW J. GREEN (EBD-CSIC) WHAT?: Dispersal ecology and invasion biology in aquatic fauna WHEN?: Thursday 9/6/2016 ­ 12:00 h WHERE?: Seminar Room ICBiBE (SS6) ABSTRACT: I will review recent and ongoing research in my group at EBD-CSIC into dispersal processes and biological invasions in aquatic ecosystems in wetlands in Andalusia and beyond. This includes colonization of an experimental pond system in Doñana, the invasion biology of an American boatman (Trichocorixa verticalis), the impact of invasive carp on a shallow lake, and the invasion genetics of the asiatic shrimp Palaeomon macrodactylus and the American brine shrimp Artemia franciscana. I will also explain ongoing research in several countries into the importance of waterbirds as vectors of dispersal for a broad spectrum of plants, invertebrates and microbes

    SEMINAR(i) 26/5/2016: CONFLICT, COMPETITION AND EXPLOITATION

    23/05/16

    WHO?: Dr. STUART WIGBY (UNIV. OXFORD) WHAT?: Conflict, Competition and Exploitation: a tale of seminal fluid proteins WHEN?: Thursday 26/5/2016 ­ 12:00 h WHERE?: Seminar Room ICBiBE (SS6) ABSTRACT: Sex was traditionally viewed as a cooperative venture, but we now know that a suite of evolutionary conflicts ­ both intrasexual and intersexual underlie sexual reproduction. The cocktail of seminal substances transferred from males to females at mating are on the front line of these conflicts, and have far reaching consequences for the fitness of both sexes.

    VII Memorial “Peregrí Casanova” de Biodiversitat i Biologia evolutiva 19/5/2016: HOW DO SPECIES EVOLVE?

    16/05/16

    WHO?: Prof. ROGER BUTLIN (UNIV. SHEFFIELD) WHAT?: How do species evolve? WHEN?: Thursday 19/5/2016 – 12:30 h WHERE?: Sala “Charles Darwin” (Aulari Farmàcia) ABSTRACT: Evolutionary biology seeks to explain two key features of the living world: adaptation and diversity. Diversity is discontinuous, with organisms falling into more or less distinct clusters in either phenotypic or genotypic space. These clusters are known as species. Their number increases through the splitting of lineages (speciation) and decreases due to extinction: the enormous diversity of life on earth results from a general excess of speciation over extinction. In sexually reproducing organisms, the distinctness of species arises primarily because successful reproduction occurs only among members of the same species and not between individuals of different species. Therefore, the key to understanding speciation is to explain how this restriction, known as ‘reproductive isolation’ evolves. Although reproductive isolation can take many forms, there are only three categories of process involved. Reproductive isolation may be a side-effect of independent evolution or a by-product of divergent selection, or it may be directly favoured by ‘reinforcement’. I will illustrate these three alternatives with examples from grasshoppers, aphids and snails.

    Conferència de Roger Butlin sobre l’evolució de noves espècies en el VII Memorial Peregrí Casanova, dijous 19 al Campus de Burjassot-Paterna

    10/05/16

    Roger Butlin, professor de la Universitat de Sheffield (Regne Unit), pronuncia la conferència ‘How do new species evolve?’ (‘Com evolucionen les noves espècies?’) aquest dijous 19 al Campus de Burjassot-Paterna. L’acte es realitza amb motiu del VII Memorial Peregrí Casanova, en reconeixement a qui va ser catedràtic d’Anatomia i introductor de les idees evolucionistes a la Universitat de València entre finals del XIX i principis del segle XX.
