Just a note to welcome our newest contributor, Prof. Thomas Near of Yale University. Tom is the world's authority on darter fish and a respected innovator and expert in the area of dating molecular phylogenetic trees. Tragically, he's also a die-hard Cubs fan.
Dechronization is authored by evolutionary biologists interested in the development and application of methods for estimating phylogeny and making phylogeny-based inferences. The goal of the blog is to provide a forum for discussion of the latest research and methods, while also providing anecdotes, tidbits of natural history, and other related information.
