ASAB Winter Meeting 2011: Why do animals mate with the "wrong partner"?

posted Nov 9, 2011, 6:56 AM by Psychology Journal Club
1-2 December, The Zoological Society, London

This 2-day meeting will explore the causes and consequences of apparent errors in mate choice, in terms of both within- and between-sex mate choice, and within- and among-species mate choice. As such the meeting will cover themes relevant to individual variation in behaviour, context-dependent choice, sexual selection and speciation. In addition to plenary talks by Professor Marlene Zuk and Professor Karin Pfennig, there will also be a special anniversary lecture by Professor Aubrey Manning to celebrate 75 years of ASAB. Furthermore, the 2011 Tinbergen Lecture will be given by Professor Gene Robinson during the meeting, and  Dr Sarah Pryke will also give her Christopher Barnard Award for Outstanding Contributions by a New Investigator talk.

More details can be found here, including a program of talks. As is traditional, the ASAB Winter Meeting has no fee and does not require registration. Delegates make their own arrangements for travel, accommodation and main meals. Delegates are also able to access London Zoo.
