Integrative and comparative biologists to discuss latest research
Date:12/28/2012

SAN FRANCISCO: The Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB), one of the oldest and most prestigious interdisciplinary biological organizations, will hold its annual meeting at the Hilton San Francisco, Union Square, in San Francisco, CA, from January 3 to 7, 2013. More than 1,500 scientists will present the latest research on animal ecology, evolution, physiology, neurobiology, and biomechanics, offering journalists a rich assortment of news and feature possibilities.

Members of the news media are encouraged to attend the meeting. For more information, please visit the meeting website at http://www.sicb.org/meetings/2013/, or contact Brett Burk.

This year at SICB, experts from a wide array of different disciplines will convene at the meeting to discuss cutting edge science on multiple topics; the following symposia may be of particular interest:

  • When Predators Attack: Sensing and Motion in Predator-Prey Interactions

  • Vertebrate Land Invasions: Past, Present, and Future

  • Phenotypic Plasticity and the Evolution of Gender Roles

Besides these symposia, SICB researchers will be discussing many diverse topics such as how animals tell what time and month it is, how they cope with a changing environment, and how they can pass information about the environment to their descendentswithout genes. Along with these, scientists will present the latest results on the mechanics of walking, swimming, hopping, jumping, and flying, the evolution of body shape, behavior, symbiosis, and ecological interactions, and many other topics.

When Predators Attack: Sensing and Motion in Predator-Prey Interactions

Predators and their prey are engaged in a constant battle, in which finely tuned sensory abilities and split-second reaction times can mean the difference between life and de
