As a part of our continuing commitment to furthering the public
understanding of science at the University of Wales College of
Medicine, we are setting up an evolution-based society for those
actively working on, or interested in aspects of evolution in Wales.
I am posting this as generally as possible, to let the widest
possible audience know about this (and hopefully join in). Anybody
who is interested is encouraged to reply to me Dyfed Lloyd-Evans at
WSRDLE at CF.AC.UK. We are hoping to get both evolutionary biologists in
Wales, paleobiologists with an interest in Wales and other interested
parties togethet under the auspices of a single forum, which is also
intended as a liaison with Schools and Colleges. Details of the first
events are listed below. Please note that the web site is unlikely to
be up and running until the middle of next week (18/19 January) at
Thank you for your interest.

As part of SET '96, the Darwin-Wallace society proposes to hold a day of
seminars and presentations on all aspects of evolutionary biology on Tuesday
19 March 1996, Insole Court, Llandaff. The aim is for an academic session in
the morning, starting at 09-30 and running until 14-00, with a schools-
oriened session from 14-00 to 16-30 in the afternoon. The aim is to
get evolutionary biologists, and those interested in Evolution in Wales
together under the auspices of the Darwin-Wallace society, with the society's
first AGM to be held at the end of the day.
Registration for the day is stlg5.00, to cover lunch andd coffee. If
either yourself, or one of your colleagues are interested in attending the
event, and would like to give a presentation (either oral, or poster) please
contact me at the numbers above, or by e-mail at WSRDLE at CF.AC.UK.
A further event for the Society in 1996 will be the first
annual Darwin-Wallace dinner, to be held on Thursday 14 November
1996, where we intend to invite a guest speaker from the field of
evolutionary biology. If you would like further details of the dinner, or are
merely interested in the Society, then, again please let me know.
Further information on the Darwin-Wallace society and its aims and
events can be found on our web page
