Tomorrow (Wednesday), I’m off to Banff for the yearly meeting of the Canadian Society for Ecology and Evolution, where I’ll be part of a symposium on the genetics of speciation. I’m much looking forward to this trip, not only to reconnect with old friends, but also to see the area, which is supposed to be spectacularly beautiful. There are mountains, hot springs, and even an endemic thermophilic snail (I’ll try to get a photo) in those springs.
I’ll be back Monday evening. Greg Mayer and Matthew Cobb have volunteered to try to post in my absence, but both are busy with end-of-semester tasks. I will also post from Canada, but it may not be often.
Now, does anybody have any suggestions about what to do or see in the area, and especially, where to eat?
