Understanding the role of biotic interchanges in evolutionary history
The Cenozoic era is key in the study of present-day biodiversity, since it is associated with the fundamentals of current biota. During the Cenozoic, biotic interchanges occurred in the form of invasions of species from one ecosystem to another. RECOMBINE, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) project, proposes the study of migration, the evolutionary formation of new species and the extinction of terrestrial vertebrates at a global level, to understand how species' communities reassembled in a changing landmass environment. The training comprises the use of modern data and methods in macroevolutionary analysis and in phylogenetic inference methods. RECOMBINE will improve our understanding of biodiversity models and contribute to the fields of macroecology, macroevolution and historical biogeography.
