After a short introduction on how to obtain reliable molecular phylogenies, the focus of the questions that could be addressed will be on taxonomy, community ecology, and comparative methods.

Most of the steps will be performed in R, but no previous knowledge on this statistical platform is required. All scripts will be carefully explained to allow all attendees understanding the rationale and usage of the statistical approaches. …
