Evolving Plant Populations and the Contingency of Genetic Effects – Ruth Shaw

January 20 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Minnesota Center for the Philosophy of Science presents at talk by Dr. Ruth Shaw on the following:

Darwin deemed the pace of evolution extremely slow, but evolutionary change on timescales amenable to direct study soon became apparent. This captured my interest and motivated my studies using field experiments to investigate evolutionary processes in the wild. I provide an overview of my research group’s investigations of evolutionary processes and their consequences in wild plant populations. Our findings highlight the profound contingency of genetic effects on evolutionary fitness and the development of traits, underscoring previous powerful challenges to genetic determinism. Despite these challenges, the view that an individual’s traits are encoded in their genomes continues to dominate academic and public perception. There remains an urgent need to confront this pernicious misunderstanding, especially given renewed investigation of the genetic basis of human behavioral traits.

Tate Hall is best visited by using the light rail and getting off at the East Bank stop. The hall sits adjacent to Northrop Auditorium. Otherwise, if driving, pay $13 or so at the River Road ramp.
