A fundamental goal in evolution is to understand how and when evolutionary lineages have diversified. To this end, researchers employ phylogenetic approaches that are being constantly improved by the development of new theoretical frameworks, better computational tools, and, in particular, a massive increase in genetic data. In this symposium we welcome studies based on innovative methods, approaches and applications of phylogenetics and biogeography, and in general, all studies describing how living organisms "have been, and are being, evolved".
