Is There Space for Race in Evolutionary Biology?

The 2011 Spring Conference for the Bay Area Biosystematists

Are human races geographical subspecies?  How about distinct evolutionary lineages?  What about ecotypes?  Does it even make sense to divide humans into subspecies?  Can there be biological races in other species even though there aren't any in humans?  This conference aims to answer these questions and more as it explores the question of whether race can be validly defined in the context of evolutionary biology.  Come join us at the 2011 Spring Conference for the Bay Area Biosystematists!  Please peruse this site to learn more about the conference.
