Welcome to a start up meeting in Nordic mathematical biology at Tjärnö 28-30 sep 2010!

The aim of this meeting is to join forces: biologists and mathematicians, experimentalists and theorists from well-established research groups in four Nordic countries, England and Estonia.

  • Centre for Theoretical Biology, University of Gothenburg
  • Biomathematics Group, University of Helsinki
  • Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis, University of Oslo
  • The Department of Theoretical Ecology, Lund University
  • Mathematical Physics Group, University of Helsinki
  • Ecological modeling group, Technical University of Denmark
  • Biocomplexity group, the Niels Bohr Institut, Copenhagen
  • Institute of Ecology and Earth Sciences, University of Tartu
  • Centre for comparative infectious disease, University of Liverpool

Centre for Theoretical Biology invites you to participate in this meeting and to take the chance to vistit the beautiful swedish west coast. The meeting will be hold at Tjärnö Marine Biological Laboratory not far from Strömstad. We will discuss interesting topics, explore nature through a couple of small excursions, enjoy the company and a tasty shellfish buffet.

The meeting will discuss:

  • Adaptive dynamics and sex
  • Comparative phylogeny, emprical and theoretical approaches
  • Mathematical epidemiology of structured populations
  • The role of constrains in adaptive evolution
  • Time series analyses and finding the process behind noisy data

We will experience:

  • A moth catching session with Toomas Tammaru
  • A snail hunt on the beaches of Saltö with Kerstin Johannesson
  • A boat ride with the research vessel R/V Nereus

Keynote speakers:

  • Eva Kisdi, Adaptive dynamics of pathogens
  • Peter Jagers, Branching Models of Adaptive Dynamics
  • Kerstin Johannesson, Ongoing speciation in a marine snail

 Contributed talks:

  • Toomas Tammaru, Locating constraints on life history evolution: the case of moths
  • Per Lundberg, Niche coevolution and species interactions
  • Uffe Høgsbro Thygesen, Diffusions and stochastic differential equations in marine biology
  • Tadeas Priklopil, On the evolution of magic traits and speciation
  • Bernhard Mehlig, Genetic variation in populations of fluctuating size: extinction and colonisation and multiple paternity in L. saxatilis
  • Philip Gerlee, The effect of space on the war of attrition
  • Alexander Sadykov, Epidemiology of conspecific community
