Evolution 2012 Virtual Issue
Journal of Evolutionary Biology Virtual Issue
Edited by Professor Michael G. Ritchie
To mark the joint meeting of ESEB, ASN, CSEE, SSB & SSE we have produced this Virtual Issue of the Journal of Evolutionary Biology. It features research papers from JEB from the ten year period 2001–2010, with the aim of highlighting primary research papers (JEB also publishes conventional reviews and ‘target reviews’, which are already well publicised on-line). The Editor has chosen two papers from each year which illustrate the breadth and strengths of the journal.

ESEB Outreach Fund
The European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB) welcomes applications to the ESEB Outreach Fund for projects that promote evolution-related activities. With a total annual budget of 15000 Euro, the goal of this initiative is to improve public knowledge about evolution globally.
Applications for funding will be accepted for educational initiatives that promote evolution, development of evolutionary material (books, films, websites) intended for a general audience, public outreach seminars, public exhibitions, etc.
The application form can be found on www.eseb.org (click on the "Outreach Fund" link). Applications will be accepted twice yearly (deadlines March 15, September 15) and should be submitted by email to U. Friedrich (Subject: Outreach).
The European Society for Evolutionary Biology was founded in 1987. The objectives of the Society are to 'Support the study of organic evolution and the integration of those scientific fields that are concerned with evolution: molecular and microbial evolution, behaviour, genetics, ecology, life histories, development, paleontology, systematics and morphology'. The Society endeavours to accomplish these objectives through the publication of the Journal of Evolutionary Biology, through meetings, and the John Maynard Smith Prize.
