CeMEB and beyond

CeMEB Virtual Assembly - CeMEB and beyond

10 June, 13.00 - 16.00 CEST, Zoom

Aim of the meeting

The aim of the meeting is to discuss how we together want to develop CeMEB further. How can CeMEB be a valuable resource for you? What questions and activities would be of the best benefit for you? And how can you contribute to the network?

The framework for this meeting is the future so we would like to especially ask our future, i.e. PhD students, postdocs and younger researchers, how CeMEB could serve you and your development in the best way?

CeMEB members

This meeting is primarily aimed at current CeMEB members. However, since it has been a while since we had an ordinarily CeMEB Assembly, we realize that you may have new PhD students, postdocs and collaborators in your research groups. Please feel free to invite them if they would like to join and participate in future activities.

Preliminary outline for the meeting

  • Introduction and background, Kerstin Johannesson
  • Inspiration and examples from other networks:
    - Flanders Eco-Evolutionary Network (EVENET), Filip Volckaert, KU Leuven
    - Evolution in Changing Seas (RCN-ECS), Katie Lotterhos, Northeastern University
    - ISBlue//Interdisciplinary School for the Blue Planet, Greg Charrier, University of Brest, LEMAR, France
  • Discussions in breakout rooms
  • Reporting and joint conclusions in plenum

Topics to be discussed

According to the results from the survey, these major research topics stood out as the ones the most important to answer in marine evolutionary biology:

  • How does plasticity and evolution interact with regards to climate change? Can we make adequate models that predict the capacity for rate of adaptation in different organisms?
  • How does plasticity and evolution interact with regards to range expansions/invasiveness? What limits the ranges of marine species?
  • How do current patterns determine spatial-temporal levels of gene flow in marine populations (marine connectivity)?
  • What is the role of chromosomal rearrangements/inversions/recombination in local adaptation/speciation? How does reproductive isolation evolve in the marine environment?

To be discussed: What concrete activities would you like to see happen to take the research and collaborations further?

Technical requirements

We will use Zoom for the meeting. Please make sure that you have the latest version of the Zoom app installed.

We are looking forward to this meeting and hope to see you on June 10!

Kerstin Johannesson & Anders Blomberg and the planning committee, Pierre De Wit, Leon Green, Ellika Faust & Eva Marie Rödström
