The importance of phylogenetic model assessment for macroevolutionary inference

Duchene Garzon, David Alejandro

Description

Several fields in biology rely on inference of evolutionary timescales using phylogenetics. As more data become available, estimates of phylogeny and evolutionary timescales can be used to answer long-standing questions in biology. Some examples include the resolution of deep taxonomic relationships or the causes of geographic gradients in species richness. Importantly, answering these questions largely depends on phylogenetic and timescale estimation methods...[Show more]
