This workshop will focus on what is unique about the ocean environment as a stage for evolution and adaptation to play out. We will prioritize lines of inquiry that will advance knowledge in both marine science and evolutionary biology. In addition, we aim to reach concensus on the appropriate experimental designs and analyses for studying adaptation in marine species, given the logistical contraints of working in marine systems.

This workshop will be held at Shoals Marine Laboratory from August 19-23, 2019. We are bringing together 40-50 researchers with expertise in marine science, evolutionary biology, and oceanography, with the objective of forming 4-6 working groups who will continue synthesis activities after the workshop.
