IV International conference “Current problems of biological evolution”

We invite everyone to take part in the IV International Conference “Contemporary Problems of Biological Evolution” which will be held on October 18–21, 2022 at the State Darwin Museum.

Moscow, 18.10.2022 – 21.10.2022


We invite everyone to take part in the IV International Conference "Contemporary Problems of Biological Evolution" which will be held on October 18–21, 2022 at the State Darwin Museum.

The language of the conference is Russian.

To participate in the conference, papers containing empirical research are accepted. or theoretical reviews in the following areas:

  • Evolutionary genetics: genotypic variability of populations, genome structure, regulation of gene activity, genetic changes in the process of adaptogenesis and speciation.
  • Intraspecific differentiation and adaptation: environmental factors, anthropogenic changes, invasions, ecological races
  • Species and speciation: the concept of a species, isolating mechanisms, zones of secondary contact and hybridization, population structure of a species.
  • Evolution of behaviour: behavioural adaptations to new conditions, communication mechanisms, ethological isolation, study of the intelligence of animals.
  • Phylogeny and phylogeography: revision of taxa of supraspecific rank, adaptive radiation.

    Macroevolution: morphology, embryology, paleontology, paleocenology.

Please send applications for participation in the conference to the e-mail address evolconf@yandex.ru no later than February 15, 2022. The rules for preparing abstracts will be announced in the 2nd information letter after registration of applications for the conference.
