Fungal Symposium 2019

Primrose Boynton & Lizel Potgieter
Registration is open until May 24, 2019.
Fungal taxonomic and ecological diversities make the fungal kingdom
an ideal group in which to study both ecological interactions and
evolutionary processes, and researchers study a wide variety of
evolutionary model systems in the fungal kingdom. With the 2019 Fungal
Evolution Symposium, we aim to cover this breadth of diversity and
expose the community inside and outside of Plön to research bringing
fungal evolution and ecology together. We intend to include
presentations on relationships between fungal populations and geographic
space, the evolution of biotic interactions between fungal symbionts
and hosts, the evolution of fungal genomes in response to environmental
changes, interactions between biotic and abiotic selection pressures on
fungal populations and a variety of other topics in fungal ecology and
evolution. Participants will benefit from formal talks and informal
conversations with international fungal evolution researchers.
Confirmed speakers are: Marcel Bucher, Dominik Begerow, Dimitrios
Floudas, Gert Kema, Diego Libkind, Alistair Mc Taggart, Brenda Wingfield
and Alga Zuccaro.
