Integrating fossils, phylogenies, and paleoclimate: the reactions of species and communities to climate change

This talk investigates the use of phylogeny and climate history to model reactions of species to climate change and explores community functional trait-environment relationships to measure ecosystem transitions. Fundamental understanding of how species and communities react to climate change should be supported by our understanding of the past. This is especially important today, because modern reactions are exacerbated by anthropogenic pressures including human population growth, habitat destruction and fragmentation, and intensifying land use.
