Iconic Brazilian ecosystems as case studies for teaching evolution Organisers: Thomas R Meagher (University of St Andrews), Eimear Nic Lughadha (Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew), Louise Mead (Michigan State University) Brazil is home to a diverse array of iconic ecosystems, from the tropical rainforests of Amazonia and Mata Atlantica to the savannahs of the Cerrado and the seasonally dry tropical forests of the Caatinga. Research in these rich ecologically and biologically diverse regions provides many opportunities for evolution-based case studies. This symposium will showcase teachable examples of evolutionary processes taking place in these iconic ecosystems.
