It's that time again - the annual joint meeting of the Society for the Study of Evolution (SSE), the American Society of Naturalists (ASN), and the Society of Systematic Biologists (SSB), commonly referred to as the "Evolution meeting" will be held from today through June 29th in Portland, OR. Dechronization bloggers Glor, Igic, Harmon, and myself are all attending, so we should be able to put up a few posts during the conference. Not to miss tomorrow: Joe Felsenstein's 9am talk on "A comparative method for discrete and continuous characters using the threshold model and MCMC." I look forward to witnessing the famous "Felsenstein effect" described by Rich at Moscow's meeting last year. Please post other must-see talks in the comments.
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.
