Plant-animal interactions (mutualistic or antagonistic) constitute the basis of the functioning of many ecosystems, playing a key role in the evolution of terrestrial biodiversity. Despite the great abundance of studies on the ecological interactions between plants and animals, we are still far from understanding how coevolution works in these types of ecological interactions.
The main goals of this symposium are to evaluate the advances in different research lines within the evolutionary ecology of plant-animal interactions, the patterns found, and the existing theoretical as well as methodological limitations. From their respective fields of specialization, a selected representation of national and international scientists will provide the ingredients for the analysis.
