University of Guelph has anounced the 4th annual Peter Yodzis Colloquium in Functional Ecology, and it'll be held in the 2 days before the CSEE annual meeting, an hour's drive from Toronto (where CSEE is being held). This year's theme is "Applied Evolution: Understanding the Past, Predicting the Future".

There will be a series of keynote lectures and an open poster session, all at a pace conducive to conversation and interaction."
