ProjectBiological diversification on the west indian archipelago
SummaryThe islands of the West Indies represent one of the largest and most biologically diverse oceanic archipelagos. The goal of our meeting is to advance our understanding of West Indian biodiversity by bringing together paleontologists, biogeographers, population biologists, and geologists. We are particularly interested in fostering synthetic comparative analyses that will permit inference of general evolutionary processes.
