Rudolf Meier now Vice President of the Willi Hennig Society

whsbanner

Prof. Meier has recently been made the vice president of the Willi Hennig society. Founded in 1980, it promotes the field of phylogenetic systematics, or cladistics. This refers to the classification of species based on evolutionary ancestry.  The latter is also the name of the ISI-ranked journal which is published on the society’s behalf.

He will also be organising Hennig XXVIII, the 2009 annual meeting in Singapore. This marks the society’s first meeting in Asia. This decision to hold the meeting in Singapore recognises the increasing strength of systematic research being done here and in the region. Specific dates have yet to be determined but dates within June and July look most likely.

Congratulations Prof Meier!
