International Congress of Vertebrate Morphology 2019

The International Congress of Vertebrate Morphology (ICVM) will take place in Prague (Czech Republic) in July 2019. Several Avineck team members will participate in this amazing meeting!

Avineck project leader Anick Abourachid & colleagues will give an oral presentation on "The neck of the birds, from form to function". Avineck students Léa Terray and Olivia Plateau will present their work on the modularity and diversity of the bird's neck.

Avineck postdoc Christine Böhmer and her colleague Emily Buchholtz organized a symposium on the "The axial skeleton: diversity, patterning and function". They compiled an excellent list of invited speakers who will present on various aspects concerning the vertebral column. The symposium is kindly supported by the Company of Biologists. Christine has also been invited as speaker to another ICVM symposium on "Natural selection and the evolution of phenotypic integration" organized by Catalina I. Villamil and Patrick Arnold.

The Journal of Morphology has published the ICVM12 Abstract Volume. It is free to view and download: [Here].
