Meeting Abstract

S8-12  Sunday, Jan. 6 15:00 - 15:30  Panel Discussion: New Perspectives on Integration in Functional Morphology FARINA, SC; Howard University

We are moderating a panel discussion on future directions for the study of integration in the fields of functional and evolutionary morphology. Topics will include: What tools and datasets are currently available that can be leveraged for studies of functional and evolutionary integration? Which broad goals and directions in our field should we be pursuing? How can we clarify and standardize terminology to make the field more accessible to broader audiences? How can we better communicate the study of integration, which is often jargon-heavy, to the public? Panelists will be Drs. Anjali Goswami, Kory Evans, Tristan Stayton, and Luz Patricia Hernandez.
