This year’s conference will have a conservation theme covering topics including population genetics, ecology and evolution. Kate will present her research on phylogenetic analysis of the critically endangered Grenada dove (Leptotila wellsi) where she carried out the first genetic analysis for this species and used phylogenetic comparative methods to predict its missing life-history trait values. Rachel will present her research on the maternal diversity of long-finned pilot whales (Globicephala melas) stranded around the British Isles, with evidence of new haplotypes, a genetic hotspot and insights into mass stranding events.
