Abstract:

Observable patterns in nature, whether they concern morphological and molecular traits or range distributions, are caused by different processes. Through phylogenetics and post-tree analyses we can recover evolutionary trends and historical pathways along the history of organisms. In this talk, a few case studies from the evolution of flowering plants will be presented as means to understand character evolution and historical biogeography at broad and small scale.
