Examples of statistical phylogeographic approaches

  title={Examples of statistical phylogeographic approaches},
  author={L. Lacey Knowles and Wayne P Maddison},
While studies of phylogeography and speciation in the past have largely focused on the documentation or detection of significant patterns of population genetic structure, the emerging field of statistical phylogeography aims to infer the history and processes underlying that structure, and to provide objective, rather than ad hoc explanations. Methods for parameter estimation are now commonly used to make inferences about demographic past. Although these approaches are well developed… CONTINUE READING
