Symposium: Confronting the Legacy of Eugenics in EEB

Organizers: ASN Diversity Committee

The main purpose of this symposium is to reckon with the history of eugenics in ecology, evolutionary biology, and genetics, as well as to discuss best practices moving forward. Some of the foundational work in our disciplines (both conceptually and methodologically) was originally developed within the eugenics program. Nevertheless, we rarely take the time to question the legacies of white supremacy in our fields, and the ways this history shapes how we think about the natural world today. Ideas about genetic determinism and the impact of genetics in our society were published in the early days of the society journal, The American Naturalist, and some of these ideas remain prevalent in society today. The often unacknowledged links between colonialism, racism, and our disciplines still work as barriers for inclusion and a more just science for everyone and by everyone. In this symposium we are bringing together a cross disciplinary group of scholars to revisit the historical legacy of misogyny and white supremacy in our discipline and the ways in which it still affects our practices. After the talks we will host a panel discussion that we hope will lead to broader discussions of how the ASN and biology as whole can begin to confront the legacy of eugenics.

Symposium II: Photosynthesis Across The Tree Of Life: Symbiosis, Photonics, And Evolution

Organizer: Cody McCoy

One of nature’s greatest innovations is photosynthesis, the engine that powers much of life on our planet. The evolution of photosynthesis is a story of convergent evolution and symbiosis. Many creatures harness solar power, from acoels and jellyfish to bivalves, corals, plants, and more. By researching the evolution of photosynthesis in these diverse taxa, we can unlock secrets about mutualistic cooperation, evolutionary conflict, and how organisms live in close-knit relationships with one another. In this symposium, researchers will come together to present research on photosynthesis across many diverse taxa and across evolutionary scales, from optical adaptations to harness more light to the geobiological history of photosynthesis on earth. We will tackle many questions which require the conceptual unification of different sub-disciplines of biology. For example, how can horizontal gene transfer help us understand the evolution of photosynthesis? What photonic adaptations do animals use to harness solar power more efficiently? Why do some photosymbiotic animals bleach – eject their symbionts during heat waves—while others are resistant? How does photosynthesis change the energy budget of organisms to impact growth and regeneration? Through this interdisciplinary topic, we will shine new light on the evolution of photosynthesis and prompt new research questions and collaborations. This symposium features speakers from many areas of biology, including botany, marine biology, evolutionary theory, biophysics, photonics, and genetics.

Symposium III: Modern Coexistence Theory

Organizers: Chuliang Song

Over the past two decades, Modern Coexistence Theory (MCT) has become the most influential theoretical framework on species coexistence within academic ecology. Its influence in bridging theory and empirical work rivals that of classical community ecology marked by the name of MacArthur. With the active development of many researchers from different theoretical and empirical backgrounds, MCT has now become a giant meta-theory encompassing many sub-theories. Unfortunately, these sub-theories have subtle but fundamental differences between them, whereby even core concepts are sometimes quantified in different ways. This lack of coherence in MCT is detrimental to its wider adoption and synthesis. Furthermore, by way of its basic construction, the theory has limitations that are not easy to overcome. This symposium aims to bring together some leading theoretical and empirical researchers in the field. The speakers will share their vision on how we ought to move forward towards a unified theory of species coexistence applicable to a wide range of empirical systems and questions. Specifically, how we should synthesize the coexisting but mutually incoherent sub-theories in MCT, and what aspects in MCT we need further development to facilitate empirical applications.
