Speaker: Prof Justin Borevitz, Research School of Biology
Foundation species play a role is establishing the bio-capacity of the ecosystem.
Speaker: Nick Matzke, Ecology & Evolution, Research School of Biology, ANU
Species Distribution Models (SDMs) typically rely on machine-learning approaches to estimate the niche of a species, where the "niche model" is effectively a correlational model

“Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution” was famously said by Theodosius Dobzhansky.
Speaker: Rob Lanfear, Research School of Biology, ANU
Lots of people want to estimate phylogenies. Lots of people like their estimates, and think that they are robust.
Lots of people are wrong.
Speakers: Craig Moritz & Huw Ogilvie, Research School of Biology, ANU
Eric Stone, Centre for Genomics, Metabolomics and Bioinformatics, ANU
Systematists and macroevolutionary biologists naturally think of bifurcating trees as a natural way to investigate the evolutionary history of species, clades and assemblages.
Speaker: Lindell Bromham, Research School of Biology, ANU
The aim of this workshop is to examine the fundamental principles of phylogenetic inference.
