Phylogeography combines phylogeny with biogeography and investigates the geographic distribution of intra- or interspecific genetic variation. In this course we will introduce the theoretical basis of phylogeography, genetic markers used, and data analysis. The main part will be a computer course in analyzing and interpreting phylogeographic data. We will start with basic analyses and introduce more advanced methods. The course is also meant to be a workshop, where it will be possible to discuss concepts, ideas and analyses, so participants are encouraged to bring their own data to analyse. Participants will also receive a number of scientific articles on the topic to study before the course.
