Integrating ecology and phylogenetics: the footprint of history in modern-day communities 1

Special Issue In the face of rapid changes in Earth's biota, understanding the evolutionary processes that drive patterns of species diversity, differentiation, and coexistence in ecosystems globally has never been more pressing. Advances through computational methods, analytical approaches, long-term observations, and well-designed experiments are essential to sustaining the complex interactions and ecosystem functions of the living world. Early naturalists seamlessly integrated ecology and evolution but lacked the tools to do so in a predictive and quantitative manner. Recent advances in computational tools and in the study of diversity gradients and community assembly have revived historical traditions integrating ecology and evolution. This work increasingly demonstrates that a legacy of evolutionary history persists in ecological patterns and processes we observe today, in concert with growing evidence for rapid adaptive evolution of populations in response to recent environmental change. The body of work represented in this Special Issue is drawn from scientists working at the interface of ecology and evolution using a range of theoretical and methodological frameworks, and working in a wide range of ecological systems around the globe. The papers are organized around three central themes: (1) methodological advances in the integration of phylogenetics in ecological research; (2) integration http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Ecology Ecological Society of America
