Ecological Genetics Meeting #EGG2023

The Annual Meeting of the Ecological Genetics Group, the longest running Special Interest Group and meeting since 1957, will provide a forum for all scientists working at the nexus of ecology, evolution, and population genetics.

As the longest running SIG within BES, EGG’s Annual Meeting has long provided a welcoming environment for anyone working at the intersection of ecology and genetics. Over the course of the three-day meeting, you can expect to hear talks that cover a wide variety of organisms both terrestrial and aquatic as well as from any branch within the tree of life. For those who prefer something more interactive, our poster events offer a chance for one-to-one discussion and networking with people at every career stage. Beyond the academic events there will also be ample opportunities for socialising including the (in)famous EGG-head’s Quiz. On the final day, we will also visit Wytham Woods, one of the most researched woodlands in the world, to hear about the different exciting projects on the ground.


An electronic programme book is now available for the event.
