workshop on phylogenetic and comparative methods* will take place from 
May 14th-18th at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. The 
workshop will introduce participants to some of the main methods of 
phylogenetic inference, the use of phylogenetic trees in comparative 
studies, and some of the main computer programs currently available. The 
workshop will consist in lectures and software demonstrations, and is 
open to anybody with an interest in phylogenetics and comparative 
biology. Some previous experience with phylogenetic methods is recommended.

165 euros for graduate students (master or PhD programs) and postdocs

workshop. Ten awards of 115 euros each will be available to subsidize 
the registration fee for students and postdocs (see instruction on
