Evolution in the Marine Environment

Life probably began in the oceans and certainly most of the major groups of organisms we know on Earth today evolved there.

However, the forces that shape evolution in the oceans are poorly understood. For example, how does speciation occur in such an open system where many groups of animals and plants apparently have a huge capacity to disperse? What historical factors have been important in shaping patterns of marine diversity we know today? How might present climate change influence the marine environment in the future? These are some of the questions that will be addressed by scientists working on evolution in marine species at a range of different scales and from contrasting habitats.

Organised by Dr Alex Rogers, Institute of Zoology, ZSL.
