American Naturalist 2020

Friday, January 3, 2020 to Tuesday, January 7, 2020

The American Society of Naturalists invites graduate students, postdocs, faculty and other professionals from ecology, evolution, behavior, genetics, physiology, and associated fields to a stand alone meeting at the Asilomar Conference Grounds on January 3-7, 2020.

This meeting will celebrate the unique ability of The American Naturalist and ASN to unify broad conceptual themes across biology by integrating theory with data and by using new technological tools to address long-standing questions. In short, this conference will showcase what it means to be a naturalist and researcher in the 21st century.

A diverse array of biologists who might not normally encounter one another at various discipline-specific meetings will gather to create a public forum where graduate students, postdocs, faculty and other professionals can define new research directions that work towards unifying the biological sciences. The meeting is not restricted to ASN members, but newcomers are encouraged to join the society. The conference will be kept small (~200 people) to encourage interaction and conversation in the naturally beautiful setting of the Monterey Peninsula at the Asilomar Conference Grounds.

Oriol LaPiedra from CREAF will participate in the Symposium "Merging behavioural ecology with eco-evolutionary dinamics: lessons from the past to move current research forward". Saturday, 4 January, 1pm-5:45pm.
