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.
