This seminar aims to address a review of the main recent advances in methods and tools (eg R packages) in ecological phylogeny that allow to gain insight on biodiversity patterns, especially of plants, and their relationship with species adaptations across different environmental settings. In addition, we will discuss some of the most promising applications of the phylogenetic approach to predict changes in biodiversity and urgent ecological issues.
