Interests: Metazoan phylogeny (particularly relationships among cephalopod mollusks and spiralian metazoans); divergence time estimation using molecular sequence data; phylogenetic theory and methodology; marine biogeography; invertebrate biology.
Interests: Statistical inference in molecular evolution; model selection using information theoretic approaches as well as likelihood approaches; detection of real discordance among gene trees, distribution of genealogies across the genome; models of protein evolution with complex variation of rates; statistical analysis of comparative data across species.
Board: Keith Barker (University of Minnesota), John McCormack (Occidental College)
Interests: phylogenetic inference methods, quantitative biodiversity assessment, philosophy of science, multivariate pattern analysis, experimental design, ecology.
Interests: My general interests are in plant systematics, evolution of floral morphology, pollination biology, biogeography, and applications of phylogenetic methods to evolution to ecology? More specifically, I am interested in the systematics of the flowering plant family Apocynaceae, biogeography of American-African disjunctions, Mexican and western US biogeography, and phylogenetic-based analyses of character evolution.
Interests: Mathematical and computational aspects of phylogenetics; distance-based methods; maximum likelihood approaches; duplication processes and histories.
Interests: Estimation of evolutionary patterns and processes, molecular phylogenetics, likelihood-weighted model averaging, tree-space exploration, model misspecification, and detection of factors that can bias phylogenetic estimates; evolution of animals and, to a lesser extent, other taxonomic groups (e.g., Bacteria and Archaea).
Interests: phenotypic evolution, especially in insects and salamanders, evolution and development, systematics and speciation of salamanders
Interests: rRNA secondary structure; Alignment of sequence data for phylogenetics; Higher level phylogenetics of Insecta (family level and above); Higher level phylogenetics of Anura. Research Taxa: Trichoptera; Odonata; Chrysomelidae.
Interests: My research interests are in phylogenetic methodology, including modeling and algorithm development. I am also interested in coalescent theory, particularly the role of the coalescent in gene tree-species tree incongruence. I also work on other problems in statistical genetics, including the analysis of microarray and QTL data.
Interests: Morphological systematics, morphometrics, extinctions, biostratigraphy, role of fossils in phylogenetics, biogeography, palaeoecology, application of quantitative methods to natural history
Interests: Molecular phylogenetics of grasses, with a focus on hybridization and polyploidy. I use gene trees from unlinked loci to identify reticulate evolutionary patterns, and attempt to sort out the roles of ancestral polymorphism, hybridization, and/or polyploidy in explaining these patterns.
Interests: Cophylogenetics (particularly of lice and birds), origin of parasitism, biogeography of New Zealand and Gondwanaland, evolution of behaviour, phylogenetics and conservation of seabirds (particularly penguins and albatrosses)
Interests: Phylogenetics of seed plants, especially angiosperms; reproductive biology and sexual systems; ancestral state reconstruction; divergence time estimation using molecular sequence data.
Interests: molecular phylogenetics, tree-of-life, macroevolution, speciation, conservation
