ONLINE COURSE -Introduction to eco-phylogenetics and comparative analyses using R (ECPH01) This course will be delivered live

7th February 2022 - 11th February 2022


Course overview: 

In this five day course, we provide an introduction to eco-phylogenetics and comparative analyses using R. We begin by providing an  overview on the use of phylogenies as a tool for evolutionary biologists and modern techniques to deal with large phylogenies and to incorporate phylogenetic uncertainty in the analyses (day 1). We then cover some of the most relevant eco-phylogenetic analyses and provide examples from the community to themacro-ecological scale (day 2-3). Finally, we introduce a diversity of classic and modern phylogenetic comparative methods to consider the historical relationship of lineages in eco-evolutionary research, including models of trait evolution, analysis of clade diversification and the use of phylogenies in spatial distribution models among others (day 4-5).

Intended Audience

This course is aimed at anyone who wishes to introduce into phylogenetic ecology and comparative analyses.
