"Molecular Genetics and Ecology of Plant Adaptation"
Vancouver, Canada. December 11-13, 2002
(sponsored by the University of British Columbia Botanical Garden and Centre
for Plant Research)


This integrative conference will explore plant adaptation with a particular
focus on molecular changes in an ecological context and the interaction
between ecology and genomics. Speakers will address different hierarchical
levels at which adaptation may be studied: population level (polymorphism
within populations and species); species level (speciation and adaptive
radiation) and supraspecific level (key innovations characteristic of major
clades, evolution of body plans and major developmental genes).

If you are interested in attending, please email Hailey Pappin

and suggestions for presentations should be emailed to the same address. A
limited amount of funding may be available to fund attendance of presenting
postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers. Please indicate whether
