Reading this cool new paper on the diversity and phylogenetic structure of ant communities in Costa Rica… http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1600-0587.2013.00631.x/full
I enjoy reading new papers to learn about who to use the latest phylogenetic methods to study adaptation and community diversity and assembly. One thing I like about Ecography papers is that they are quick reads.
I would love to have the opportunity to do this same kind of study on fishes or other taxa from biodiversity hotspots. I already know how to run phylocom and how to use R to manage large datasets. Where is the data/collaborator? That’s the question!
