On Monday, I will begin a rotating program officer position at the National Science Foundation in the Systematic Biology and Biotic Inventories Cluster. Thus, this is going to be my last post on Dechronization until my rotation is over. It has been a really great experience being part of this blog and I've met some great people because of it. Keep up the good work Dechron'ers. I'll be reading!
P.S. The photo is of a shovel-snouted lizard (Meroles anchietae), that I got to see on a recent trip to Namibia.
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.
