The pace of progress is such that it is now possible to pose general questions about the process of morphological evolution, such as: are there any general themes underlying the genetic and developmental basis of variation and divergence? And, are the phenomena and mechanisms observable over short time scales sufficient to explain processes that have unfolded over much longer time scales in the fossil record?
The purpose of this Keystone meeting on evolutionary developmental biology is to gather the leading researchers across the discipline to share emerging information and to address these general questions. The prospective speakers include the most notable contributors to the field and emerging young investigators who together constitute an exceptionally broad representation of this highly interdisciplinary research field.
