"Predictive Adaptive Responses (PARs) and fitness – A workshop to explore the evidence and further requirements"

February 3 - 4, 2015 in Münster

The workshop comprised keynote lectures as well as discussion groups and critically examined match-mismatch hypotheses and effects on Darwinian fitness, identified gaps in knowledge/concepts and discussed robust experimental methodologies, conditions and measures appropriate for testing the PARs hypothesis and Darwinian fitness.
