Phylogenetic comparative ecology

Leader Toomas Tammaru
Evolutionary ecology has so far relied largely on model systems more suitable for experimental work. Recent decades have, however, also seen rapid development of the phylogenetic comparative method, which relies on localizing evolutionary changes on the phylogenetic tree, and the search for associations between changes in the values of different traits. We would like to build a link between phylogenetic comparative ecology and experimental life history studies ecology in order to understand the relative roles of adaptations and constraints, and links between evolution and ecosystem functioning.
