讲座内容简介

While traditional descriptive fields of biology have discovered much of the patterns of life on earth, a comparative approach is needed to understand the underlying mechanisms and processes that have shaped these patterns. The rebirth of phylogenetics and the maturation of its methodology since the 60s through 80s of the last century have made tree thinking a unifying theme in current biology. Using the wasp superfamily Cynipoidea as an example, the seminar will showcase how phylogenetic studies on the group in the last three decades, using morphology, molecular data, as well as fossil materials, have established an natural framework for future systematic studies and provided insight into the evolution of some fascinating life history strategies of these wasps, including host specificity, gall formation, inquilinism, and parasitism.
