The 26th DZG Graduate Meeting Evolutionary Biology will be organized by the General & Systematic Zoology Section, Zoological Institute & Museum, University of Greifswald in May 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will meet on a virtual platform to present current projects, facilitate scientific discussions and connect people, with no registration fees for participants. While the main topic is “Animal Communication & Sexual Selection”, all early-career scholars of evolutionary biology are welcome to present and discuss their research plans and/or results.
