Speaker: Sarah Hsieh, Foley Group, E&E, RSB
Increased human disturbance to forest ecosystems has exacerbated the spread of fungal pathogens to non-native environments. Rust pathogens (Pucciniales) can spread long distances by human activity and wind dispersal, and can cause severe disease outbreaks in cereal crops and in forest trees.

Speaker: Qi Cheng - PhD Candidate - Broer Group
Apical broad-spectrum neutral (0) amino acid transporter B0AT1 (SLC6A19) is mainly expressed in small intestine and kidney, mediating the transport of all neutral amino acids in a Na+-dependent manner.

2017
Speaker: Dr Ben Long, RSB, ANU
Abstract - Improvement of yield potential in global food crops has hit a breeding road-block which could be solved through genetic engineering.

2017
Speaker: Annisa Satyanti, Nicotra Group, E&E, RSB
Alpine ecosystems are considered to be particularly sensitive to the effect of global warming because they are characterized by species adapted to low temperatures. Plant responses to a changing climate will depend on their potential to establish and recruit following seed germination.

Dec
2017
Speaker: Marco Festa-Bianchet, Département de biologie, Université de Sherbrooke, Canada
The potential evolutionary consequences of selective harvest are now routinely considered in fisheries management, but are often met with hostility by wildlife managers.  I will discuss strong evidence of artificial evolution of smaller horns in bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) and review

Speaker: Huw Ogilvie, Moritz Group, E&E, RSB
So much research builds on evolutionary histories of species and genes, which are commonly represented as trees.
