offered by integrating phylogenetic knowledge with biodiversity data,
examine the methodological and computational challenges of doing so, and
highlight approaches addressing these challenges. We especially encourage
submissions that span the domains of evolutionary biology, bioinformatics
(i.e. phyloinformatics) and biodiversity informatics to address the themes
of this symposium. Symposium keynote speaker: Dr. Susan Perkins (American
