Symposium: Evolutionary Change in Human-altered Environments

February 8-10, 2007 at the University of California, Los Angeles
Evolutionary Change in Human-altered Environments: An International Summit

Human activities are affecting the evolutionary processes that generate and maintain life. Climate change and deforestation are facilitating the evolutionary jump of animal diseases to humans. Fish farming has resulted in the spread of poorly adaptive genes to the wild. Introductions of exotic species are impacting native species and limiting their ability to adapt.
