sWEEP - Unifying marine and terrestrial biodiversity at the interplay of macroecology, macrophysiology and macroevolution

First meeting: 21.-24.10.2014

Miguel Ángel Olalla Tárraga;
Ignacio Morales Castilla

Working group postdoc:
Joanne Bennett

iDiv member:
Ingolf Kühn

Project summary:
Macroecology, Macroevolution and Macrophysiology have notably contributed to improve our understanding of how species are distributed on Earth, but the three disciplines have remained mostly disconnected from each other. Equally, large-scale biodiversity patterns in marine and terrestrial realms have been studied separately even though the underlying ecological processes might be coincident. It is the aim of sWEEP to synthesize data, disciplines and tools to explore how marine and terrestrial species distributions respond to macroevolutionary and macrophysiological determinants
