IBEST Seminar-Helene Morlon

12:30 p.m.
Engineering and Physics Building, Room 214
691 Ash St. in Moscow
Join the Institute for Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Studies for a presentation by Helene Morlon of Ecole Polytechnique. Understanding biodiversity patterns using the Tree of Life, species richness results from past and current speciation, extinction and dispersal events, themselves influenced by various ecological and evolutionary processes. Estimating rates of diversification, and understanding how and why they vary over evolutionary time, geographical space, and species groups, is thus the key to understanding how ecological and evolutionary processes generate biological diversity. Phylogenetic approaches are critical for making such inferences, especially in groups or regions lacking fossil data. Morlon will illustrate how phylogenies, coupled with models of cladogenesis, can be used to test the role of ecological limits, boom-then-bust diversity dynamics, the paleoenvironment, and population dynamics on the biodiversity patterns that we observe today. The Institute for Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Studies (IBEST) is an interdisciplinary research group at the University of Idaho focused on understanding the patterns and processes of evolution that occur over comparatively short periods of time.
