Sexual selection: patterns in the history of life

  • Kavli Royal Society Centre Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell Buckinghamshire England (map)

Sexual selection is potentially an important driver of macroevolutionary processes like speciation and extinction, but this has rarely been tested using the fossil record. This meeting will bring biologists and palaeontologists together to discuss sexual selection’s role in macroevolution, how to detect it in extinct animals and how to measure its influence on the history of life across geological time.
