Future events:
Challenges in Macroecology: Scaling the Time Barrier
(A one-day meeting sponsored by the Natural History Museum, the 
Palaeontological Association and the British Ecological Society exploring the 
links between palaeontology and macroecology)

Date:                     1st April 2014,
Venue                  Natural History Museum, London

With an emphasis on discussion and networking opportunities, we aim to 
facilitate new collaborations between palaeo- and neontological 
macroecologists, and determine the strengths and limitations of integrating 
concepts, questions and data across timescales. There will be keynote talks 
from David Jablonski (U. Chicago), Kathy Willis (Kew) and Lee Hsiang Liow (U. 
Oslo), and an open call for 'lightning talks' (5 minutes).

Call for lightning talks:
We invite submissions (title only) for lightning talks.  Any aspect of 
long-timescale macroecology and the integration of fossil data into the 
ecological research agenda are welcome e.g. Diversity gradients through time; 
biodiversity hotspots; the role of history in shaping the modern biota; 
temporal scaling of macroecological patterns and processes; ecosystem 
resilience past and present; data and methods across timescales.

Spring CEE Symposium

Collections-Based Research in the Genomic 
Era<https://www.ucl.ac.uk/cee/events/linnsoc-meeting> organised by Bill Baker 
and Sven Buerki at The Linnean Society
2nd& 3rd April 2014 - Linnean Society of London

For details and registration visit 

Collections-based research, conducted in Natural History Museums, Botanical 
Gardens and Zoos, has constantly re-invented itself in response to changing 
methods and technologies. Biological collections (e.g. museum, herbarium or 
living specimens) are at the front line of biodiversity research, informing 
taxonomy, evolution, conservation and sustainable livelihoods. As the genomic 
era dawns, generating DNA data at an unprecedented scale, collections-based 
researchers must adapt and respond to the new opportunities that these 
technologies present. This meeting will bring together genomics experts, 
collections-based researchers and curators to explore next generation 
sequencing methods. Sessions will range from practical aspects to applications 
in phylogenetics, museomics and conservation.

If you would like to include a seminar, event or a seminar series to the CEE, 
please e-mail details of the event, at least two weeks before the seminar date, 
to cee@xxxxxxxxx<mailto:cee@xxxxxxxxx>.
Once accepted your event will be publicised on the calendar below, via e-mail 
and to the twitter community.
