Presentation title:

When Ecology Meets Genealogy

The coalescent is a mathematical object that describes the genealogy of a random sample of genes from a very large population. Kingman defined this process in 1982 and it has since become a standard tool in the analysis of population data. Kingman formulated the process under the assumption of neutrality. This process was later extended to selection in Neuhauser and Krone (1997). A critical assumption in all these models is that populations evolve in the absence of ecological forces. We will provide an overview of some of the established mathematical theory and then address how to incorporate ecological forces into the genealogy
