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!
