The Organizing Committee invite you to the Systematics without Borders Conference 2013, a combined conference of Invertebrate Biodiversity & Conservation, Society of Australian Systematic Biologists, and Australasian Systematic Botany Society. The Conference will be held at The University of Sydney, Camperdown, in the New Law Building Annex on Eastern Avenue.
We are now working in the golden age of systematics. Major phylogenetic questions across the tree of life that seemed unanswerable only a couple of decades ago have yielded to analysis. Our task of reconstructing organismal phylogeny down to species level is still daunting but is beginning to look achievable. Biologists of all stripes are using phylogenies and classifications as frameworks for combining and comparing information in novel ways that few systematists anticipated. The Systematics without Borders conference will provide a forum for systematists and other biologists to present the results of their research and to explore the possibilities for collaborating further in the age of integrative biology.
