The 10th annual Applied Phylogenetics Workshop took place last week at the Bodega Bay Marine Lab. If you didn't make it to the workshop, but are interested in learning about the latest methods in applied phylogenetics I have good news: we've wikified the workshop! Recent upgrades to the Wiki include new tutorials on how to conduct basic phylogenetic analyses, analyze morphological evolution using the program Brownie, and assesss patterns of community assembly and evolution. We've also expanded our coverage of phylogenetic comparative methods and made progress toward completion of a comprehensive BEAST tutorial. Check it out and don't be shy about signing up as a contributor yourself!
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.
