Eseb 2013: Deadline for abstract submission is on the 28th February!



As a part of the XIV Congress of the European Society for Evolutionary
Biology, which will be held in Lisbon from the 19th  to 24th August 2013,
we are pleased to announce a symposium on "Genomic Islands: their role
in adaptation and speciation". 

Genomic Islands: their role in adaptation and speciation

Keynote Speakers:
Jeffery Feder (
Nick Barton (
Patrik Nosil (

Genome-wide data offers a unique opportunity to gain an insight into
the genomic architecture involved in the adaptive divergence found
in heterogeneous environments which can lead to local adaptation,
reproductive isolation and ultimately speciation. By considering a range
of species and approaches, this symposium will explore the interactions
of diversifying selection and homogenizing gene flow to identify
trends in genomic evolution which accompany adaptation and ecological
speciation. The symposium will focus on both theory and empirical data
to assess the importance (or otherwise) of genomic islands of divergence.

Deadline for abstract submission: 28th February! To register and submit your abstract for this symposium, please follow the instructions on the congress website (
We look forward to hearing from you, and hope to see you in Lisbon next summer! Organising committee:
Rui Faria
Sarah Helyar
Chris Jiggins
Gary Carvalho
Arcadi Navarro
Carole Smadja
