This workshop will provide an overview of recent theoretical and methodological developments for modeling the complex evolutionary dynamics that have shaped the structure of contemporary biodiversity. Theoretical work at the interface between ecology and evolutionary studies will be presented, as well as its applications to empirical data. This will include mathematical and probabilistic modeling, statistical methodologies, and new insights obtained from biological data.
