Coordinating Travel to Moscow, Idaho for Evolution 2009
London, Mexico City, Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic), Dublin, San Juan (Puerto Rico), San Jose (Costa Rica). What do these cities have in common? They're just a few of the exciting places I could visit more cheaply and more conveniently than the location of this year's Evolution meetings: Moscow, Idaho. In addition to the 10 hour flight from Rochester to Spokane, I've learned that the shuttles between Spokane and Moscow offered by the conference organizers are utterly useless for my itinerary (arrival at midnight on June 12th and departure at 8:30PM on June 16th). If anybody else is still working on transportation between Spokane and Moscow perhaps we can use the comments section here to help coordinate shared transportation? I've been given the impression that the only options outside of the conference shuttles are taxi (>$80 on way fare) or car rental.
Dechronization is authored by evolutionary biologists interested in the development and application of methods for estimating phylogeny and making phylogeny-based inferences. The goal of the blog is to provide a forum for discussion of the latest research and methods, while also providing anecdotes, tidbits of natural history, and other related information.
