Ignasi Bartomeus is a community ecologist working at EBD-CSIC. www.bartomeuslab.com @ibartomeus. Abstract: Ecological communities are conformed by a complex group of interacting species. Ecologists tend to simplify their life by breaking the problem into smaller pieces and focusing, for example, on a single trophic level, or on a single type of interaction. But in nature, all interactions happen simultaneously. I present a joint effort to capture real-world complexity onto an ecological theory that allows us to understand species persistence. Overall, I show using mathematical, observational, and experimental approaches, how the network of species interactions constrains the opportunities of species to coexists. Only by including antagonistic and mutualistic interactions simultaneously, we can understand how communities persist.

Abstract: Snake-like lizards render a fascinating study system to understand how species' phenotypes relate to climate and geographic distribution. Throughout ~180 My of history, elongated and limb reduced forms (snake-like) have evolved in at least 24 times, one of which are precisely the snakes. Along that time, snake-like lizards have evolved in all continents but the Antarctic. In this talk, I show some of my personal experience with them in Brazil and Australia, and how these species’ phenotypes may evolve in relation with climate and geographic distribution.

Abstract: the phenotype determines how an organism interacts with its environment and consequently it is at the center of some fundamental questions in biology. Among tetrapods, amphibians show notable variation in phenotypic characters associated with coloration, reproductive strategies, and development. In this lecture, I will present a series of empirical studies developed by collaborators and I where we attempt to discover patterns and mechanisms of phenotypic variation in amphibians related to color production, advertisement calls, and tadpoles. We developed our research within an evolutionary context and attempted to interpret the ecological and conservation implications of our results.

Madagascar is famous for its lemurs. In this talk, Onja Razafindratsima (UC Berkely) describes her meticulous work in understanding how seed dispersal by lemurs shapes the tree species composition and forest structure of Madagascar's unique rainforests.

Woensdag 3 maart - Lezing via Zoom: Bastaardsoortvorming bij mossen
Bryoloog Henk Siebel verzorgt de woensdagavondlezing met de titel 'Wie doet het met wie hoe vaak in Tortula? Waar leidt dat toe en wat zien we hiervan?' Over het wijdverspreide fenomeen van bastaardsoortvorming bij mossen. Deze lezing start om 19:30 uur en duurt 45 minuten. Vooraf en na afloop kun je terecht in de virtuele wereld van Wonder.Me en bijkletsen met andere deelnemers.
