2016 Annual Symposium of the Fisheries Society of the British Isles (FSBI) on “Fish, Genes and Genomes: Contributions to Ecology, Evolution & Management” from the 18th to the 22nd of July 2016 in Plymouth, UK.
The aim of this symposium is to bring together scientists interested in the study and application of genetics and genomics to decipher fundamental and applied aspects of fish biodiversity. Fish biologists, geneticists, physiologists, ecologists and conservation biologists who incorporate molecular, genetic or evolutionary principles into their studies are invited. Importantly also, biologists engaged in advancing our understanding of core concepts and approaches in ecology, evolution and management through the use of fish as models are equally encouraged to participate. The 3.5-day symposium will provide a timely platform to synthesize recent genetic and genomic advances in fish and fisheries biology. The meeting aims to highlight significant recent advances and identify new and interdisciplinary areas likely to make a key impact in our understanding of fish in natural and disturbed environments.
Contributions are encouraged in the following, or related themes in the broad field of genetics and genomics in fish biology, ecology, evolution and conservation. Interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary papers are welcomed, especially where these relate to improved understanding of populations, environmental interactions and conservation initiatives.
- Adaptation and evolutionary change
- Community ecology and evolution
- Management of wild and captive populations
- Fish, molecules and policy
Potential contributors should submit abstracts for oral or poster presentation by 1 November 2015.
