At this meeting we will discuss possible themes for this semester's seminar, but just to get the ball rolling I have uploaded a short Nature paper for us to discuss:

This seminar will be split between class meetings that emphasize phylogenetic underpinnings, tree comparisons, and reconciliation methods, with those focused on the evolutionary processes underlying co-evolutionary phenomena (as well as the forces and circumstances that, more often than not, prevent it from occurring). And while parasites will figure large in our readings and discussions, we will also explore insect-plant co-evolution, endosymbionts and other mutualisms, mimicry, and others.

Meeting time and place

For the Spring 2015 semester, we are meeting in the Bamford Room (TLS 171B) Day/time TBD

Topics

This seminar will be split between class meetings that emphasize phylogenetic underpinnings, tree comparisons, and reconciliation methods, with those focused on the evolutionary processes underlying co-evolutionary phenomena (as well as the forces and circumstances that, more often than not, prevent it from occurring). And while parasites will figure large in our readings and discussions, we will also explore insect-plant co-evolution, endosymbionts and other mutualisms, mimicry, and others.

At this meeting we will discuss possible themes for this semester's seminar, and determine the meeting time
