  • 2:35 - S├ębastien Patiny Supermatrix - supertree analysis of the bee Hymenoptera) phylogeny
  • 2:55 - Mike Sharkey HymAToL results
  • 3:15 - Phylogeny Roundtable: Where do we go from here?

The symposium will be held Sunday, November 13, 2011, 1:30-5:30 PM, in Room D9 of the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. Hopefully we can post an updated schedule soon that includes details about the business meeting (lots of good stuff, we promise!) See you then!
