Evolutionary emergence of life cycles

Oct 26 - Oct 29, 2018

The evolution of life cycles is central to evolutionary transitions and much more.  This three day workshop will bring together a diverse range of scientists to focus on issues such as the link between life cycles, timescales, development and the origins of Darwinian properties (particularly reproduction and its partner heredity), the origins of cells, multicellular organisms and so forth; the impact of nascent cycles on how natural selection comes to effect the evolution of collectives; why death is integral and why death matters.

Organisers: Paul Rainey, Corina Tarnita, Will Ratcliff & Jordi van Gestel

Invited participants: Buzz Baum, Michael Doebeli, Erwin Frey, Paulien Hogeweg, Eric Libby, Silvia de Monte, Vidyanand Nanjundiah, Elizabeth Ostrowski, Iñaki Ruiz-Trillo, Fred Spiegel, Eros Szathmary.

Registration is closed.
