Biogeographic calibrations for the molecular clock

Ho, Simon; Tong, K. Jun; Foster, Charles S.P.; Ritchie, Andrew M.; Lo, Nathan; Crisp, Michael


Molecular estimates of evolutionary timescales have an important role in a range of biological studies. Such estimates can bemade usingmethods based onmolecular clocks, includingmodels that are able to account for rate variation across lineages.All clockmodels share a dependence on calibrations,which enable estimates to be given in absolute time units. There are many available methods for incorporating fossil calibrations, but geological and climatic data can also provide useful calibrations...[Show more]
