An intensive workshop on phylogenetic and comparative methods will take place at the Stazione Zoologica Dohrn in Naples from 5th-7th of December 2016. 

The workshop will include lectures on the theoretical aspects of generating time-calibrated phylogenies, reconstructing trait evolution and investigating rates of lineage diversification, as well as practical tutorials. The number of participants will be limited to 25, and admission is on a first come, first served basis. No previous experience with R is necessary, but students will be expected to have a basic understanding of molecular evolution.
Registration fees: 100€ (fees include lunches); special price at 50€ for students enrolled at the Universities of Naples (Federico II and Parthenope) with no lunch included.
