Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite students and young researchers to the summer
school Theory of Speciation to be held between 19 and 26 August 2012
in Turku, Finland. The core program of the school consists of five
series of lectures,

Sergey Gavrilets: Population genetics of speciation
Nick Barton: Multilocus models of speciation

All young researchers working in mathematical ecology/evolution can
apply from all countries, especially from Europe and the
Mediterranean. The school is aimed at PhD students of biology with
sufficient theoretical background and at PhD students of mathematics
with interest in ecology and evolution, but we also welcome advanced
undergraduates and postdocs.

The deadline for applications is 15 April 2012 and there is no fee for
