Phylogenies and community ecology

Principal Investigators:

Michael J. Donoghue, and Campbell O. Webb

There exists a long history in ecology of examining communities in terms of their taxonomic structure (e.g., species/genus ratios), with the expectation that this will shed light on both histori-cal community assembly and contemporary ecological structure. Modern phylogenies now offer far more precision in the analysis of community taxonomic structure, and an increasing number of studies are aimed at incorporating phylogenetic information into community ecology. Con-versely, studies of speciation are increasingly trying to incorporate information... more
