The eighteenth Meeting of the Willi Hennig Society will be held in =
G=F6ttingen, Germany, 12-17 September 1999. You are cordially invited =
to attend.

A fusion of various attempts to reconstruct phylogenetic =
relationships can be observed, with advanced molecular methods, =
detailed morphological and ethological studies etc. now being
viewed as almost equally valuable. Therefore we have, after some time =
of controversial discussion on methods, chosen the general title =
"Phylogeny and Evolution" to lay emphasis on a a
reunification of phylogenetists.

In 1999, the Willi Hennig Society will meet for the first time in =
Germany, where the founder of phylogenetic systematics, or =
cladistics, Willi Hennig, was born in 1913. Therefore, the
scientific meeting will begin with a few presentations on the early =
history and the roots of phylogenetic systematics.

The Scientific session will be held in the lecture hall of the =
Institute of Education (Institut f=FCr Erziehungswissenschaften, =
