Conferencia - Ecomorphology as a key for the understanding paleoclimates


35th Annual Meeting of the Willi Hennig Society - XII Reunión de Cladística y Biogeografía


 First Circular 

The 35th Annual Meeting of the Willi Hennig Society will take place together with the XII Reunión Argentina de Cladistica y Biogeografia in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from October 5th to October 8th, 2016. 
The event will be hosted by the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales "Bernardino Rivadavia" (http://www.macn.secyt.gov.ar), a 200-year old institution with a strong tradition in taxonomy and systematics, which is part of the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET). 

Four symposia have been scheduled 

The origin and early diversification of the modern amniotan clades. 
Chairs: Diego Pol and Martín Ezcurra. 
Paleobotany and the incorporation of fossils in plant systematics. 
Chairs: Alejandra Gandolfo and Dennis Stevenson. 
Methodological problems. 
Chair: Pablo Goloboff 
Biogeography: more than phylogenies 
Chairs: Claudia Szumik and Lone Aagesen. 

Course on Principles of Phylogenomics 

This brief course (3.5 days) will be held after the meeting, from October 10th to 13th. The course is organized by MACN and the Sistema Nacional de Datos Genómicos (SNDG, Argentina). The course is offered by Rosa Fernández (Museum of Comparative Zoology and Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University). Additional information will be provided as the date of the meeting approaches.
