Speciation rates vary tremendously among evolutionary lineages but our understanding of the genomic architecture facilitating very rapid speciation remains incomplete...
1–2pm 18 September 2018
Please note: this seminar has been cancelled. Climate change threatens biodiversity, with many animals thought to be at risk of extinction. Global change will also alter...
11.30am–12.30pm 14 September 2018
Catherine Grueber’s work reveals how evolutionary and population processes affect individual- and population-level genetic diversity of small populations. In doing so,...
6–7 September 2018
The transit of Venus in the 17th century. Neanderthal fossils that changed our understanding of human evolution. The description of thousands of new species, such as the Canberran...
9.15am 3 September – 5pm 4 September 2018
This year, the Research School of Biology at ANU has had some truly excellent visitors who work, amongst other things, on Computational Biology. Professor Matt Hahn (Indiana...
12–1pm 28 August 2018
Animal pollination plays a critical role in seed set and maintenance of genetic diversity for most plant species. When these plants are co-opted into agriculture this becomes...
11.30am–12.30pm 17 August 2018
Australia has an incredibly diverse mammal fauna, with 87% of terrestrial species being endemic.  They are a treasure trove of interesting biology, enabling new perspectives...

1–2pm 16 August 2018
As part of National Science Week, The Embassy of Colombia, and ANU's Research School of Biology and Fenner School of Environment and Society, invite you to a special...
11.30am–12.30pm 10 August 2018
The first museum specimen of the Night Parrot was collected in 1845, but lay unnoticed and unrecognised until well into the 20th century. Since then the parrot has continued to...
7–9pm 8 August 2018

12–1pm 7 August 2018
Helicoverpa armigera is one of the most significant pests of agriculture across Asia, Africa, Australia and Europe. The recent invasion of H. armigera into South...
12–1pm 3 August 2018
Evolutionary biology is under-pinned by an elegant framework of theoretical models that predict the dynamics of within-population change. Testing this theory...
7pm 2 August 2018
The Australian Platypus Conservancy will present an illustrated talk about the fascinating Native Water-rat (Rakali) in the ACT region. The platypus is widely recognised...
12–1pm 31 July 2018
Phylogenomics has revealed unexpected levels of disagreement among gene trees in almost every clade examined. While error in tree inference must play some role in this...
12–1pm 24 July 2018
In recent years a number of high profile publications have used phylogenetically explicit comparative methods to attempt to explain the distribution of cooperative breeding in...
