Ten Years with CAnMove!

In 2018 CAnMove is celebrating ten years as a vibrant research environment. To mark this milestone, former and current members were invited to a conference summing up much of what have been achieved during this decade.
CAnMove ten year conference

Bengt Hansson and Christer Brönmark had done a great job putting the conference program together - a "smörgåsbord" of interesting plenary lectures mixed with talks on CAnMove research.

The four plenarys covered both different research areas and taxa; Rory Wilson from Swansea University told a movement tale of two penguins, Ellen Ketterson fom Indiana University elaborated on changing climate, seasonal timing, and population divergence, Julien Cote from Paul Sabatier University shared some of his latest research in the "Metatron" - an impressive semi-wild, but yet well-controlled research environment and Miriam Liedvogel from Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön talked about how her group is taking on the big question of how to understand the genetics of migratory traits. It was a pleasure welcoming back some of the former CAnMove postdocs, international collaborators as well as all researchers still active in Lund.

Kerstin Johannesson, Holk Cruse and Christer Wiklund, three of CAnMove's science advisory board members, also attended the conference - as usual adding to the interesting discussions with their presence and engagement.

The last talk before the poster session was given by Susanne Åkesson, programme coordinator, trying to sum up these ten years of research, technical development, seminars, conferences, workshops, book writing, collaborations and outreach. Quite an achievement looking back!

If Bengt and Christer were responsible for the research part, our very own Christina Rengefors took care of everyting else - creating a professional and warm atmosphere for the whole conference. Many thanks to her, Bengt, Christer and Inger Ekström for all the great pictures - and to everybody who contributed!
