Abstract: This conference presents cutting edge research into the importance of polyploidy in genetics, evolution and ecology. It will be distinctive in its small group dynamics, wonderful location and great speakers. There will be three core sessions over two and a half days; these are: (1) the long-term and (2) immediate consequences of interspecific hybridization and polyploidy. These explore effects over deep time and shallower time frames and focus on genetics and epigenetics. The final core session will be: (3) polyploidy in light of ecological genetics. Here we discuss current data showing effects of hybridisation and polyploidy on phenotypes, niche occupation and ecology. Whilst previous polyploidy meetings have been dominated by plant research, there is now much exciting new data from animals and fungi, areas we are particularly keen to encourage. We would also like to encourage early career scientists, to contribute their cutting edge insights into these fast developing and exciting areas. [Information of the supplier]
