Workshop on the Biogeography and Phylogeography of Atlantic Fishes

Date: 26-27 November 2011
Location: Lisbon, Portugal

Over the last several years a number of studies on the phylogeography of Atlantic fish have started to shed light on evolutionary processes in this taxa and in their marine environment. Some reviews devoted to biogeographic patterns, namely diversity patterns, historical refuges, dispersal routes and barriers, etc have been published in recent years. The aim of the workshop is to present a coordinated synthesis and discuss studies and perspectives on major patterns and give updates on the state of the art in Atlantic biogeography and phylogeography of fish and outline directions for future research.

The workshop will focus on a number of high profile keynote speakers and the aim is to provide a forum in which also early career students have an opportunity to discuss their work through informal poster presentations.

The meeting will be held in a location where speakers and attendants can spend quality time in interacting informally, taking advantage of breaks and meals together.
