Primary Instructor:

This seminar focuses on topics in biogeography, macroevolution, and ecomorphology. We will discuss variation in geographic diversity over time in terms of environmental history, ecological interactions and diversification of clades. We will evaluate and compare taxonomic diversity and morphological disparity at different spatial scales, integrating data from the fossil record and the modern biota for some examples. Potential topics for discussion and analysis include phylogenetic community structure and morphological disparity, diversification and disparity over deep time, and environmental sorting of ecomorphs over space and time. The group will discuss papers and potentially develop a group research project to analyze geographic patterns of diversity and disparity for a focal clade.
