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.

Environmental problems do not recognize geographic or disciplinary boundaries. In order to develop sustainable solutions to environmental challenges we must incorporate the natural and social sciences and also deeply engage local communities. Through the lens of coastal systems and the human communities dependent upon them, we will explore how coupled human-natural systems interact. Participants will be introduced to fundamental concepts in coastal environmental science and will learn how to collect and evaluate data to solve real-world local environmental problems.
