Do you need a phylogenetic perspective on your study of adaptation? Or an adaptive perspective on your study of phylogenetics? In any case, don't miss this opportunity to get inspired and updated on the very latest developments of phylogenetic and comparative analyses ('beyond independent contrasts'), presented and instructed by some of the front theoretical and empirical researchers in this exciting and rapidly moving field.
It is both a workshop (mainly 2-3 June, with a dinner party; see schedule), open to everyone (but please sign up also for that!), and a PhD course (1.5 hp) with computer excercises and student projects. It will provide a general introduction to 'tree-thinking' and phylogenetic comparative methods in biology, with focus on recent R-based programs for model-based comparative analyses.
Workshop dinner party 3 June, at Villa Belparc in Slottsskogen
REGISTRATION BEFORE 21 MAY

Accommodation in Göteborg: You can google up several options and price levels in the fik- and pub-dense Linnestaden (west central Göteborg), but two conveniently located and reasonably cheap alternatives are Slottsskogens Vandrarhem and Vandrarhemmet Linné. These are also a nice walk in the park (literally) away.
