Report on UCLA Institute of the Environment International Summit
The international summit on "Evolutionary Change in Human-altered Environments," held at UCLA from February 8-10, was attended by 325 people from 21 countries.
Sponsored by the UCLA Institute of the Environment, and co-organized by CTR Director Thomas Smith and Professor Louis Bernatchez, the summit brought together more than 50 prominent scientists and policy makers to discuss solutions to the many environmental problems we face. In addition, 104 people presented posters at the summit. Many graduate students and postdoctoral researchers attended this groundbreaking educational event.
The speakers’ abstracts and presentations can be viewed on the summit web site at http://www.ioe.ucla.edu/CTR/ioesymposium.html under the link for “Speaker Presentations.” The abstracts and most of the talks can be accessed by clicking on one of the links next to the speaker’s name. Later this year, Blackwell Publishing will be publishing the proceedings in a special issue of the journal, Molecular Ecology. The publication date will be announced on the summit web site.
