Project
Understanding the factors behind the diversification of insects in the deep past. We will investigate the impact of biotic interactions (here competition and availability of prey), rarely taken into account in diversification analyses, and will compare to the more classically analyzed paleo-environments (e.g. crises, thermal maximums). The insects are a relevant group for which there is an unbalanced specific richness across clades, suggesting a complex diversification dynamic but that is not studied. By combining diversification analyses and phylogenetic reconstructions of extant and extinct taxa, this project aims to provide answers to the reasons for their peculiar diversification.
