We will discuss the basics underlying the construction and analysis of Integral Projection Models (IPMs), a class of structured population models which allow the inclusion of continuous individual covariates such as body size.
In doing so, we discuss a recent paper coming from our midst with an interesting extension of the standard IPM methodology:
"Individual heterogeneity in life histories and eco-evolutionary dynamics" (Vindenes & Langangen, 2015)
CEES Extra seminar by Richard Lenski
The journal club is back and this Friday 5th of February we will start with a paper from 2015 on Tempo and Mode in phylogenetic comparative methods (Kaliontzopoulou and Adams). Same time and place!
Friday seminar by Benjamin Weigel
This week we’ll discuss a paper by vonHoldt and collaborators in Genome Research from 2011 and a short, but interesting follow up by Rutledge et.al, published in 2015 in Biology Letters.
Friday seminar by John M. Fryxell, University of Guelph, Canada
Late Lunch Talk by Claire Geslin from Université de Bretagne, France
Friday seminar by Indrė Žliobaitė
Late Lunch Talk by Mark Ravinet.
This Friday we will focus on a book chapter from Symonds and Blomberg (2014) on Phylogenetic Generalised Least Squares from a recently published book on phylogenetic comparative methods. This will be an introduction for a discussion on the use of appropriate methodology when it comes to comparative methods. If you yourself are wondering what to use in your own research, come join the discussion!

This week we will discuss a paper on patterns of opercle shape evolution in a cichlid radiation by Wilson et al. which use geometric morphometrics and the comparative methods to draw some interesting conclusions.
Have you ever wondered what Horizon 2020 is all about? And what are Societal Challenges? And whether that is something for you? Now is the time to get answers to all these questions!
This week we'll discuss a recent paper in Systematic Biology on the use of the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck Model to investigate patterns of adaptive evolution in phylogenies.
Friday, corner room @11 as usual.
This week we will discuss a paper on transposable elements as agents of rapid adaptation may explain the genetic paradox of invasive species that was recently published in Molecular Ecology by Stapley and colleagues.
This Friday 27th of November, we will read a paper by Cantalapiedra et al. 2015: "Congruent phylogenetic and fossil signatures of mammalian diversification dynamics driven by Tertiary abiotic change."
This week we will discuss a paper by Lamichhaney and colleagues recently published in Nature Genetics. The study addresses the genomic architecture explaining the striking morphological and behavioural polymorphism seen among three distinctive male morphs of the lekking wader Ruff.
This week we will discuss a paper on how structural variation such as copy number variation can tell a different story than SNPs. This study by Sudmant and coworkers was recently published in Science. Please note that we have changed the time to 11:30 this time too!
CEES Extra seminar by Laura Nuño de la Rosa
Late Lunch Talk by Ole Kristian Tørresen, Lex Nederbragt, with others from the cod genomics team
Friday seminar by Marius Roesti from University of Basel (Switzerland) and University of British Columbia (Canada)
Welcome back! This Friday 13th of November, we will read a paper by Zelditch et al. 2015 "Relationships of diversity, disparity,and their evolutionary rates in squirrels (Sciuridae)".
This week we will discuss a paper on how a novel prey life history leads to sympatric divergence in a predator species that was recently published in Nature Communications by Brodersen and colleagues. This will bring some ecology back to the journal club after some more molecular papers!
