Phylogenies in Ecology: A Guide to Concepts and Methods

Marc W. Cadotte and T. Jonathan Davies

Abstract

This is the first book to critically review the application of phylogenetic methods in ecology, and it serves as a primer to working ecologists and students of ecology wishing to understand these methods. The book demonstrates how phylogenetic information is transforming ecology by offering fresh ways to estimate the similarities and differences among species, and by providing deeper, evolutionary-based insights on species distributions, coexistence, and niche partitioning. It examines this emerging area's explosive growth, allowing for this new body of hypotheses testing. It systematically lo ... More

Keywords: phylogenetic methods, ecology, species distributions, species coexistence, niche partitioning, ecophylogenetic methodology, conservation, global change, evolution
