Today, I’ll be talking at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography about… FishES!!!

Fish-ES Today, I´LL be talking at the scripps Institution of Oceanography about… Fishes Climate change, ocean acidification, pollution and other factors are already affecting the distribution range, migratory habits, and stock size of many marine fish species. Reliable estimation of phylogeny is central to avoid inaccuracy in downstream macroevolutionary inferences. The large amount of data […]

Moving into Eukaryotic Metabarcoding with Dr. Owen S. Wangensteen & Dr. Daniel Marquina!!!

Moving into Eukaryotic Metabarcoding With Dr. Owen S. Wangensteen & Dr. Daniel Marquina!!! Metabarcoding techniques are a set of novel genetic tools for qualitatively and quantitatively assessing biodiversity of natural communities. Their potential applications include (but are not limited to) accurate water quality, soil diversity assessment, trophic analyses of digestive contents, diagnosis of health status of fisheries, early detection […]

Big Data Biogeography – Species occurrences through space and time.

Species Delimitation workshop Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History Instructors: Dr. Alex Zizka (iDiv) and Dr. Daniele Silvestro (University of Lausanne, Switzerland) The public availability of large-scale species distribution data has increased drastically over the last ten years. In particular, due to the aggregation of records from museums and herbaria, and citizen science in public […]
