Invertebrates have evolved a variety of sensory systems allowing them to thrive in diverse ecological niches. The evolution of sensory systems has been affected by a range of selective pressures, including predation, mating, habitat selection, to name a few, which has in turn shaped the evolution of behaviour under various environmental contexts. This symposium will explore the evolution of sensory ecology in invertebrates, with a focus on the behaviours, their mechanisms and the ecological context that have shaped these systems. All the sensory modalities and species will be considered. We also welcome research that explores the impact of anthropogenic environmental disruption on the evolution of sensory systems, and the potential for these changes to alter ecological interactions and thus, drive speciation.
