OIST Mini Symposium "Phylogeny and Classification of Termites"2022年11月29日 (火) 9:00 〜 2022年12月1日 (木) 17:45
This mini-symposium will allow the leading researchers on termite phylogeny and evolution to present their latest results. It will help determine the gaps in our understanding, and design approaches to fill them. In particular, this mini-symposium will provide a platform for researchers to determine the necessary steps to take to create a new termite classification, that takes into account phylogenetic evidences.

Individual-based temporal beta-diversity: Individual turnover and compositional shift in a community
15:30~16:00: questions and discussion
As increasing the necessity to assess the influences of global climate change and anthropogenic disturbances on biodiversity, the concept of beta-diversity has been extended to a temporal context and has been intensively studied in recent years. In studies of temporal beta-diversity, methodologies used in spatial beta-diversity have often been used simply. However, temporal beta-diversity often includes "the same individual" between two communities implicitly, which has not been the case with spatial communities, so it is necessary to consider the effects of individual turnover and persistence for quantifying temporal beta-diversity. I focused on both individual identity and the persistence of individuals within a temporal beta-diversity framework and developed some novel indices. In my presentation, I will explain the novel indices which I recently developed and the concepts behind them, showing examples of analysis. I would also like to discuss the prospects for community assemblages through both time and individual identity.
