In the last two decades, sex-specific maternal effects in birds have been a flourishing field of research. Yet, there are several well-established views that need new insight and potential revision. I will present methodological, empirical and meta-analytical examples of this kind.

The last century has seen dramatic changes in the management and distribution of honey bees, bringing along a cocktail of novel stressors such as pesticides and diseases.

Speaker: Alyssa Weinstein, Peakall and Linde Groups, E&E, RSB
Sexual deception is the most beguiling of pollination strategies to evolve. Deceitful plants mimic the sex-pheromones of insects, thereby luring them into visiting, mating with, and inadvertently pollinating their flowers!

Speaker: Gergana Daskalova, University of Edinburgh
All across the world, species’ populations and the biodiversity of ecological communities are changing in complex ways. Against a backdrop of accelerating global change, a critical research step is to disentangle the sources of the heterogeneous patterns of population and biodiversity change.

Speaker: Sabine Rumpf, University of Vienna
Mountains harbour disproportionately high biodiversity, including rare and endangered species, but are in general poorly protected.

Many insects change colour during ontogeny and, in some, this can be explained by different selective pressures acting on highly dissimilar adult and larval forms.

Speaker: David Kainer, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
The increasing proliferation of biological assays, high throughput phenotyping and computational prediction has resulted in an enormous wealth of biological data in many different species. These data layers (e.g.

Speaker: Damien Esquerre, Keogh Group, E&E, RSB
Current patterns of biodiversity, whether its species richness or phenotypic diversity, need to be understood in the context of the past. The history of living organisms is told at multiple dimensions, one of them being their phylogenetic history.
