ForBio, NTNU and NABIS course: Diversification in Time and Space

Diversification in Time and Space deals with how patterns of biological diversity change over time and the processes that cause these changes. Focus will be on understanding micro- and macro-evolutionary processes, how these change species diversity and species distributions, and how to obtain knowledge of species histories. Emphasis will be placed on understanding methods used in analyses of micro- and macro-evolutionary diversification in time and space, and in particular coalescent theory as a tool for understanding population genetic processes and inferring phylogenetic patterns.
