How to fail at species delimitation
Species delimitation is the act of identifying species‐level biological diversity. In recent years, the field has witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of methods available for delimitingExpand

Poor fit to the multispecies coalescent is widely detectable in empirical data.
Model checking is a critical part of Bayesian data analysis, yet it remains largely unused in systematic studies. Phylogeny estimation has recently moved into an era of increasingly complex modelsExpand

Model choice for phylogeographic inference using a large set of models
Model‐based analyses are common in phylogeographic inference because they parameterize processes such as population division, gene flow and expansion that are of interest to biologists. ApproximateExpand

The evolution of phylogeographic data sets
Empirical phylogeographic studies have progressively sampled greater numbers of loci over time, in part motivated by theoretical papers showing that estimates of key demographic parameters improve asExpand

Historical Species Distribution Models Predict Species Limits in Western Plethodon Salamanders.
Allopatry is commonly used to predict boundaries in species delimitation investigations under the assumption that currently allopatric distributions are indicative of reproductive isolation; however,Expand

Geographical range size and latitude predict population genetic structure in a global survey
While genetic diversity within species is influenced by both geographical distance and environmental gradients, it is unclear what other factors are likely to promote population genetic structure.Expand

A pheromone by any other gene would smell as sweet
Reproductive isolation is the result of either the inability to produce viable and fertile offspring or the avoidance of mating altogether. While these mechanisms can evolve either over time viaExpand
