Default Course The Use of Phylogenies in the Study of Macroevolution,October 16-20, 2017, Barcelona.

Dear colleagues,

Registration is open for the course "THE USE OF PHYLOGENIES IN THE STUDY OF MACROEVOLUTION – 5th edition".

Dates: October 16th-20th, 2017.

Instructor: Dr. Juan López Cantalapiedra (Museum für Naturkunde, Germany).

This course is aimed at postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers and established academics.

The course will introduce the use of phylogenetic information to reconstruct ancestral characters and biogeographic histories, using different phylogenetic comparative methods. It will also tackle trait evolution modeling 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 history of groups. Participants are encouraged to bring their data sets to use in the practical classes.

The course includes an optional first introductory day to basic R.

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

Softwa Mesquite, FigTree, R (ape, TreeSim, TreePar, Geiger, OUwie, BioGeoBEARS).

Participants are encouraged to bring their data sets to use in the practical class.

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.

Please feel free to distribute this information between your colleagues if you consider it appropriate.

With best regards

Sole
