Beskrivning av projektet
Madagascar and its satellite islands of Mascarenes, due to their endemic and diverse biota, exhibit a natural laboratory to study general patterns of evolutionary radiations in tropics. In recent years, numerous studies started to shed light on forces driving these radiations. It appears that these forces embrace a large spectrum of biological phenomena whose interplay remains poorly understood. To overcome this problem, we propose a new analytical approach that promises to enhance our knowledge of how species evolve and diversify.
