P. David Polly, Bass Distinguished Visiting Environmental Scholar, Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies, & Robert R. Shrock Professor, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Indiana University
Topic: Cycles and space: interactions between evolutionary processes, trait sorting, and environmental change
Location: ESC 110
The last 2.5 million years of Earth's climate have been unusual in cycling regularly between glacial and interglacial phases. Using computational modeling, phylogenetics, biogeography, and the fossil record, I'll explore how these cycles interact with speciation and phenotypic evolution and why the interactions may be fundamentally different than in non-cycling periods of Earth's history.
