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

21.-24.10.2014

PIs: Miguel Ángel Olalla Tárraga; Ignacio Morales Castilla

associated postdoc: Joanne Bennett

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
