2 I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree... ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Thank you to Dr. Stephen Lougheed for the time required to research and conceptualize this paper, and Dr. Theresa Burg for a space free from teething graduate students and frenzied, underpaid babies in which to write it. 
Phylogeny of Dalytyphloplanida (Platyhelminthes: Rhabdocoela): single escape from the marine environment?
An overview of the marine rhabdocoel fauna of Uruguay is given and two of these, Acirrostylus poncedeleoni n.sp.
Identificação e caracterização filogenética de uma nova forma recombinante de HIV-1 presente no Sul do Brasil
Eight sequences were characterized, spanning from position 2265 to 3290 of the HIV-1 genome, with an unprecedented recombination between subtypes B and C, and phylogenetic analysis presented here show that this recombination event occurred in Brazil in 1982.


Bayesian Inference of Phylogeny and Its Impact on Evolutionary Biology
Bayesian inference of phylogeny brings a new perspective to a number of outstanding issues in evolutionary biology, including the analysis of large phylogenetic trees and complex evolutionary models and the detection of the footprint of natural selection in DNA sequences.

Potential applications and pitfalls of Bayesian inference of phylogeny.
The Bayesian inference of phylogeny appears to possess advantages over the other methods in terms of ability to use complex models of evolution, ease of interpretation of the results, and computational efficiency.
Phylogeny estimation: traditional and Bayesian approaches
The ability of the new approaches to address previously intractable questions is making phylogenetic analysis an essential tool in an increasing number of areas of genetic research.
Phylogenetic methods come of age: testing hypotheses in an evolutionary context.
The use of molecular phylogenies to examine evolutionary questions has become commonplace with the automation of DNA sequencing and the availability of efficient computer programs to perform
MRBAYES: Bayesian inference of phylogenetic trees
The program MRBAYES performs Bayesian inference of phylogeny using a variant of Markov chain Monte Carlo, and an executable is available at http://brahms.rochester.edu/software.html.
MAC5: Bayesian inference of phylogenetic trees from DNA sequences incorporating gaps
SUMMARY MAC5 implements MCMC sampling of the posterior distribution of tree topologies from DNA sequences containing gaps by using a five state model of evolution (the four nucleotides and the gap
Accommodating phylogenetic uncertainty in evolutionary studies.
Methods for accommodating phylogenetic uncertainty in evolutionary studies by means of Bayesian inference are described, which are computationally intensive but general enough to be applied in most comparative evolutionary studies.
Bootstrap confidence levels for phylogenetic trees.
It is shown that Felsenstein's method is not biased, but that it can be corrected to better agree with standard ideas of confidence levels and hypothesis testing, and can be made by using the more elaborate bootstrap method presented here, at the expense of considerably more computation.
MrBayes 3: Bayesian phylogenetic inference under mixed models
MrBayes 3 performs Bayesian phylogenetic analysis combining information from different data partitions or subsets evolving under different stochastic evolutionary models to analyze heterogeneous data sets and explore a wide variety of structured models mixing partition-unique and shared parameters.
