The Darwin Day symposia at the University of Haifa have been very successful. The first meeting was on Evo Devo; the second dealt with current issues in Human Evolution; the third one was on Mechanisms of Genetic Change; and last year’s symposium was on the Evolution of Behavior. The symposium features nine invited  talks by prominent researchers on the topic.
