Time as a Misty Window - Phylogenies from the deep sea
Evolution of diversity at sea
A. Rus Hoelzel
School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences
The ‘marine paradox’ is based on the observation that considerable diversity has evolved in the marine environment, despite relatively few obvious boundaries to gene flow. In this talk I’ll consider the biogeographic context and habitat dependencies that support differentiation among populations and species radiations in marine species, with a focus on the highly mobile delphinid cetaceans (dolphins). Modern methods allow inference about ancestral nodes that help determine the geographic and ecological context for evolutionary histories, and these methods will feature in my talk.
