This October 2nd-4th, the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University will host the 2009Anolis symposium. It's been over ten years since anole biologists gathered at Penn State, so there should be plenty to discuss. Registration is only $20 and slots for presenters are still available. The recently completed genome of Anolis carolinensis which will be the subject of a satellite meeting taking place at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard on October 5th. Worried you don't know enough about anoles to enjoy a conference like this? Just pick up a copy of Losos's new book and you'll be an expert before you know it (it's 20% off if you order prior to it's July 9th release)! Photo credit: Anolis fowleri by Luke Mahler.
