Biodiversity changes through time and varies in space. The aim of this course is to understand major processes causing changes in biological diversity. Focus will be on understanding micro- and macro-evolutionary processes, how these change diversity and species distributions, and how to obtain knowledge of species histories. Emphasis will be placed on understanding methods used in analyses of evolutionary diversification in time and space, and in particular coalescent theory as a tool for understanding population genetic processes and inferring phylogenetic patterns.
