Default Workshop on The use of Phylogenies in the Study of Macroevolution,Sep 28 Oct 2, Barcelona (Spain)

Dear colleagues,

Registration is open for the course "THE USE OF PHYLOGENIES IN THE STUDY OF
MACROEVOLUTION - 3rd edition", Septiembre 28-October 2, 2015. Instructor: Dr.
Juan López Cantalapiedra (Museo de Ciencias Naturales, CSIC, Spain).

New phylogenetic methods would allow us to draw on the information encapsulated
in phylogenetic trees in order to address a wide range of questions on
macroevolution. First, this course will introduce participants to the use,
modification and representation of phylogenetic trees. Then, we will focus on
the use of phylogenetic information to reconstruct ancestral characters and
biogeographic histories, learning how to apply phylogenetic comparative methods.
This course will also tackle trait evolution modelling and the assessment of
phylogenetic signal. Finally, we will learn about the shape of phylogenetic
trees and its evolutionary causes and how to estimate the rates of
diversification throughout the evolutionary history of groups. Participants are
encouraged to bring their data sets to use in the practical class.

Important note: Please bear in mind that this course is not about reconstructing
(building) phylogenetic trees.

Softwa Mesquite, TreeEdit, FigTree, BayesTraits (using BayesTraits Wrapper in
R), Tracer, RASP and R (ape, TreeSim, TreePar, Geiger, OUwie, BioGeoBEARS).

Place: Facilities of the CRIP at Els Hostalets de Pierola, Barcelona (Spain).

Organized by: Transmitting Science, the Centre de Restauració i Interpretació
Paleontologica and the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont.
