SEMINAR(i): DECEIT AND SELF-DECEPTION

01/12/17

WHO?: Dr. ROBERT TRIVERS (http://roberttrivers.com) WHAT?: Deceit and self-deception WHEN?: Friday 1/12/2017 – 12:30 h WHERE?: Conference room Parc Científic (first floor, Institutes building) ABSTRACT: Deception is everywhere in nature. And nowhere more so than in our own species. We humans are especially good at telling others less - ormore - than the truth. Why, however, would organisms both seek out information and then act to destroy it? In short, why practice self-deception? We deceive ourselves the better to deceive others, and thereby reap the advantages. But can we correct our own biases? Are we doomed to indulge in fantasies, inflate our egos, and show off? Is it even a good idea to battle self-deception?

    SEMINAR(i): PALEOTIME MACHINES TO UNVEIL THE FUTURE OF BIODIVERSITY

    10/11/17

    WHO?: Dr. DAVID NOGUÉS-BRAVO (Museum Natural History Denmark, University of Copenhagen) WHAT?: PaleoTime machines to unveil the future of biodiversity WHEN?: Friday 10/11/2017 – 12:30 h WHERE?: Seminar room ICBiBE - SS6 (lower-ground floor, Institutes building) ABSTRACT: Ecologists are increasingly interested in understanding how biological diversity will respond to climate change. Past biodiversity dynamics recorded in paleo-archives show a broad array of responses, including tolerance, microevolution, migration, and extinction, occurring across a broad range of taxonomic, temporal and spatial scales. However, this knowledge is fragmented within disciplinary and scale boundaries. I will outline cross-disciplinary approaches that will better apprehend the mechanisms allowing species to survive, facilitating prediction of changes in future biological diversity. I will also provide study cases of my recent research (from woolly mammoths to H. sapiens sapiens) to illustrate how analyzing past biodiversity responses to climate change will increase our ability to anticipate responses of biological diversity to global warming.
