Coalescent-based species delimitation in an integrative taxonomy

Fujita, Matthew K.; Leache, Adam D.; Burbrink, Frank T.; McGuire, Jimmy A; Moritz, Craig


The statistical rigor of species delimitation has increased dramatically over the past decade. Coalescent theory provides powerful models for population genetic inference, and is now increasingly important in phylogenetics and speciation research. By applying probabilistic models, coalescent-based species delimitation provides clear and objective testing of alternative hypotheses of evolutionary independence. As acquisition of multilocus data becomes increasingly automated, coalescent-based...[Show more]
