Weekly reading: Wiens on why biogeography matters

This week’s reading, our last for the Fall 2013 semester, will again tackle the relationships between different short- to longer-term time scales and ‘proper’ methods in historical biogeography. And why this matters. Hopefully an apt ending to the semester’s suite of papers. Leading candidate topics for next semester are character coding, inference methods and their conceptual underpinnings, and comparative phylogenetic methods. To be decided on soon.

Wiens, J.J. 2012. Why biogeography matters: historical biogeography vs. phylogeography and community phylogenetics for inferring ecological and evolutionary processes. Frontiers of Biogeography 4(3): 1-8. Available on-line here.
