Associate Professor Takeshi Horinouchi gave an invited lecture at COSPAR2018 held from July 14 to July 22, 2018 in Pasadena, California, USA. COSPAR or Committee on Space Research is an international organization that promotes scientific research in space, and calls a General Assembly every second year, which is one of the biggest conference in space science.

He was one of 4 lecturers selected by the COSPAR Executive Director, the President, and the Chair of the Assembly Scientific Program committee for the Latest Results Session that intends to highlight some recent, outstanding results from world-class scientists. He has been one of world-leading scientists gaining international recognition through his research on Venusian atmosphere by Akatsuki, the Venus Climate Orbiter.

Title: Evolution in life in cities

Speaker: Prof. Marc T. J. Johnson (University of Toronto, Mississauga)

Abstract:
Urban areas represent the fastest growing ecosystem on earth, in which the development of cities dramatically changes the biotic and abiotic environment to create novel ecosystems.
Despite the importance of urbanization, we have little understanding of how urbanization affects the evolution of species that live in cities.
In this talk, I will review our current knowledge of about the effects of cities on multiple evolutionary processes, including mutation, gene flow, genetic drift and natural selection.
I will then describe our work examining how these evolutionary processes affect the ability of plants to adapt to urban environments.
I will conclude with a discussion of existing gaps in our knowledge and a description of the first global study of urban evolution, in which we are looking for Japanese collaborators.
