Invasion Genetics: The Baker and Stebbins Legacy
A symposium at Asilomar, CA (USA)
13-15 Aug 2014

We are nearing the 50th anniversary of one of the most important books in
evolutionary biology: The Genetics of Colonizing Species (1965) edited by
Herbert Baker and G. Ledyard Stebbins. This classic volume was based on a
symposium at Asilomar, California in 1964 and initiated the study of the
genetics and evolution of invasive species. To revisit the historical legacy
of the meeting and book, we are pleased to announce a symposium at Asilomar
from August 13-15, 2014. The symposium will enjoy support from Wiley
Blackwell Publishers, and associated original papers will appear in a
Special Issue of Molecular Ecology in 2015. The symposium proceedings
(including the popular question-answer transcripts of the original) will
also be published in 2015 as a book to mark the 50th anniversary of the
original volume.

Please join us for this special event!
