this weeks seminar (Thursday, 18.02.) will be given by Prof. Alex Roulin, from Lausanne University, Zwitzerland. His focus is behavioural and evolutionary biology with main focus on sexual and natural selection, host-parasite interactions, parent-offspring conflict, alloparental care and recently population dynamics. He’s published lots of stuff on melanin plumage ornamentation in owls and other birds.
He’ll be speaking on
“Sex-dependent selection on an autosomal melanin-based female ornament: ultimate function and proximal mechanism”
If you are interested to meet him on thursday, please let me know and I’ll arrange it. I also thought of going out for a curry that night, if anybody wants to join, please let me know!
