Congratulations Eva Albert!
The paper Albert et al. (2013) Assessing the robustness of the networks of spatial genetic variation, Ecology Letters, has been awarded by the EBD has "Best Paper in 2013"
We are pleased to announce the upcoming conference entitled “Modern Phylogenetic Comparative Methods and their Application in Evolutionary Biology”, which will take place in Seville (Spain) from the 11th-15th November 2014.
Phylogenetic comparative methods are now widely used in very diverse fields of evolutionary biology to make robust inferences from interspecific data and phylogenies. Currently, we witness a rapid flourishing of the phylogenetic toolbox allowing researchers to tackle diverse questions concerning the evolution of species and their traits. The conference aims at providing a bouquet of overviews on the most recent developments by the most prominent experts of the comparative methodology, and also at attracting a wide range of contributions from different fields of evolutionary biology to demonstrate how the phylogenetic comparative approach can be used to address an ample array of biological questions in different taxa.
Visitors! Ariel Rodriguez and José Manuel Lucas Canovas
We are very pleased to receive Ariel Rodriguezfrom the Technical University of Braunschweig. He presented yesterday in the EBD an interesting seminar called "Advertisement call evolution in Cuban frogs of the genus Eleutherodactylus". He is collaborating with Ávaro Dugo-Cota, Alejandro Gonzalez-Voyer and Carles Vilà.

Joaquín Ortegohas been awarded with a “Severo Ochoa Microproyectos” grant
The grant is to fund the project entitled “Genetic variation in the scrub oak Californian species complex”. This research project aims to integrate genetic information and species distribution modelling to study the factors structuring intra- and inter-specific genetic variation in an oak species complex distributed from northern California to Baja California.
