DESCRIPCIÓN

This hands-on workshop will cover the primary phylogenetic comparative methods used to study the evolution of biodiversity. By the end of the workshop students will 1) Understand the fundamental models of character and lineage diversification 2) Know how to implement these models to test hypotheses using the R statistical framework 3) Understand some of the limitations of these methods and how to assess the appropriateness of the model. The workshop will integrate lectures, with hands-on demonstrations and in-depth exercises.
