Evolution 2004

The Evolution Conference 2004 begins in two days. This year it is being held at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. This yearly conference is probably the biggest in the field of evolutionary biology. The Evolution Conference is jointly sponsored by the Society for the Study of Evolution, the Society of Systematic Biologists, and The American Society of Naturalists.

This year’s schedule includes symposia on estimating clade ages, adaptation during ecological invasions, biological diversity, teaching evolution, sexual dimorphism, and evolution of plant phenotypes.

I will be attending, but not presenting anything. I will be gone till July 2, and probably have intermittent internet access during the time. Next year’s conference is in Alaska, and I hope to present some of my research there.

My wife was out of town last week when she rode her bike across Georgia. She says that she is now adventured out. This is a picture of her on the last day in Savannah.

Well I’m here at CSU. The conference is going fine. The most thought provoking talk I’ve seen so far was one on whether the K/T boundary actually has an extention event. The subject of the talk is in press right now with TREE. I will probably blog about it when it comes out.

Douglas Theobald and I are going to meet up tomorrow morning after his talk.
