WHO
The Willi Hennig Society promotes studies in Phylogenetic Systematics. When first expressed by Hennig in his works, the idea that only monophyletic groups of organisms, as most evolutionarily entities, should be recognized and formally named, caused hot controversy but it is now established as the standard approach to modern systematics. The Society publishes Cladistics, one of the most prestigious international scientific journal dedicated to phylogenetic systematics.

WHAT
For the first time in its history the WHS organizes its annual congress in Italy. MUSE and the city of Trento are proud to host this important international event.The program will be articulated into a series of sessions and symposia during which various issues related to phylogenetic analysis will be addressed: from systematics to biogeography to macroevolutionary analysis of individual clades.The congress will also give particular emphasis to the key topics of research in this field in Italy.
Participants will have the possibility to visit the exhibition halls of the new museum at any time during the congress. Visits or research in the museum's collections will be possible following appointment.
