Abstract Detail



Phylogenetic approaches to understanding biodiversity and endemism

Kellar, P. Roxanne [1], Mishler, Brent [2].

Phylogenetic approaches to understanding biodiversity and endemism.

Emerging research in phylogenetic diversity and endemism is adding a new dimension to investigations in biogeography, community ecology and conservation biology. This symposium will highlight the various ways in which phylogenies are being applied to questions about endemism, rarity, invasive species, extinction, and biodiversity, through comparative studies, new bioinformatics tools, and new quantitative metrics and statistical tests. Goals are to disseminate recent advances in the field and to encourage new ideas that further enhance ecological studies and inform public policy and conservation priorities.
