On 9 March, over 150 biologists gathered in London for the Centre for Ecology and Evolution spring symposium, 'Integrating Ecology into Macroevolutionary Research'. The event brought together researchers from London-based institutions alongside others from across the UK, Europe and North America for a day of talks. The meeting highlighted methodological advances and recent analyses of exemplar datasets focusing on the exploration of the role of ecological processes in shaping macroevolutionary patterns.
