Meeting time and place

We are meeting this semester in the Bamford Room (TLS 171B) Tuesdays 4-5pm.

Theme for Fall Semester 2009

This semester we will focus on speciation and hybridization, then transition into phylogeography/ historical biogeography. Random papers/ themes, however, are welcomed.

We will continue talking about Dispersal-Extinction-Cladogesis (DEC) model this week. In 2005, Ree et al. proposed the initial version of DEC although this approach was not named at that time. In 2008, Ree and Smith developed it and published a paper in Sys. Bio., which might be thought as the second version. The paper we will read is about the third version of DEC, likelihood with fossil, and they call it DEC*.

I would recommend to check Figure S6 (supplements are available online).;jsessionid=697A5A8835708B33E83085CE4729FB59

The next paper is optional. It talks about priors for molecular dating analyses. Simon Ho has published a more recent paper on the topic, this is shorter/simpler.
