*https://www.prstatistics.com/course/phylogenetic-comparative-methods-for-studying-diversification-and-phenotypic-evolution-pcme01/ <https://www.prstatistics.com/course/phylogenetic-comparative-methods-for-studying-diversification-and-phenotypic-evolution-pcme01/>*This course will be delivered by Dr. Antigoni Kaliontzopoulou from the 5th - 8th November 2018 in Glasgow City Centre. Course Overview: Phylogenetic comparative methods are commonly used nowadays to investigate how species diversification occurs and to test hypotheses about the mechanisms that drive phenotypic evolution, e.g. to model speciation and extinction, to understand why some groups are more diverse than others, to test whether phenotypic traits have evolved under neutral, directional or diversifying selection, to investigate how evolutionary rates are modified across the evolutionary history of a group etc. In all these cases, a phylogenetic hypothesis for the group of interest is combined to phenotypic and ecological data at the species level to understand the tempo and mode of evolutionary change. The objective of this course is to provide an overview of these methods and of the tools available for their implementation in the R statistical language. During theoretical sessions, we will review the main concepts and statistical tools necessary for testing hypotheses about species diversification and phenotypic evolution. These will then be implemented during practicals through worked examples to provide the participants with hands-on experience on data management and the implementation of these methods to real biological data.
