Abstract [en]

What drives evolution? This was one of the main questions raised at the   final ZOONET meeting in Budapest, Hungary, in November 2008. The   meeting marked the conclusion of ZOONET, an EU-funded Marie-Curie   Research Training Network comprising nine research groups from all over   Europe (Max Telford, University College London; Michael Akam,   University of Cambridge; Detlev Arendt, EMBL Heidelberg; Maria Ina   Arnone, Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn Napoli; Michalis Averof, IMBB   Heraklion; Graham Budd, Uppsala University; Richard Copley, University   of Oxford; Wim Damen, University of Cologne; Ernst Wimmer, University   of Gottingen). ZOONET meetings and practical courses held during the   past four years provided researchers from diverse   backgrounds-bioinformatics, phylogenetics, embryology, palaeontology,   and developmental and molecular biology-the opportunity to discuss   their work under a common umbrella of evolutionary developmental   biology (Evo Devo). The Budapest meeting emphasized in-depth   discussions of the key concepts defining Evo Devo, and bringing   together ZOONET researchers with external speakers who were invited to   present their views on the evolution of animal form. The discussion   sessions addressed four main topics: the driving forces of evolution,   segmentation, fossils and phylogeny, and the future of Evo Devo.
