Section: 002 The Latitudinal Diversity Gradient: Earth's Fundamental Biodiversity Pattern
Term: WN 2018
Subject: Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB)
Department: LSA Ecology & Evolutionary Biology
Credits:
1
Advisory Prerequisites:
Graduate standing and permission of instructor.
Repeatability:
May be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

The latitudinal diversity gradient is perhaps the most prominent biodiversity pattern on Earth, but the ecological and evolutionary causes of the pattern remain elusive. In this seminar, we will discuss the generality of the gradient and its proposed ecological and evolutionary causes. We will also discuss the relationship between the latitudinal diversity gradient and other regional diversity anomalies, towards understanding why species richness is distributed so unevenly across the Earth’s surface.
