Event description

Description

Come celebrate the 150 years of The American Naturalist!

The American Society of Naturalists invites graduate students, postdocs, faculty and other professionals from ecology, evolution, behavior, genetics, physiology, and associated fields to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of The American Naturalist at our stand alone meeting at the Asilomar Conference Grounds on 5-9 January 2018.

This meeting will celebrate the influence of The American Naturalist and demonstrate the ASN's unique ability to unify broad conceptual themes across biology by integrating theory with data and by using new technological tools to address long-standing questions. In short, this conference will showcase what it means to be a naturalist and researcher in the 21st century.

A diverse array of biologists who might not normally encounter one another at various discipline-specific meetings will gather to create a public forum where graduate students, postdocs, faculty and other professionals can define new research directions that work towards unifying the biological sciences. The meeting is not restricted to ASN members, but newcomers are encouraged to join the society. The conference will be kept small to encourage interaction and conversation in the naturally beautiful setting of the Monterey Peninsula at the Asilomar Conference Grounds.

The American Society of Naturalists strives to advance knowledge of unifying biological principles by uncovering processes that generate and maintain patterns of biological diversity. These patterns and processes necessarily involve complex interactions between ecology, evolution, genetics, behavior, and physiology. Consequently, ASN emphasizes the value of interdisciplinary research and collaborations between diverse biologists to achieve conceptual unification across the biological sciences.
