Statistical approaches to paleobiological questions

Paleobiology is the study of the ecology and evolution of both extinct and extant organisms, using data from the fossil record. The estimation of ecological and evolutionary parameters from such data is subject to both similar and different statistical issues as those based on living flora and fauna. This session comprises of invited contributions that present a spectrum of studies, spanning plankton to mammals, highlighting statistical concerns in analysing paleontological data and studying very long-term ecological and evolutionary dynamics.

Chaired by Lee Hsiang Liow, Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis, University of Oslo
