Phyloseminar - new series on comparative methods

I wanted to put in a plug for Phyloseminar, which is an online seminar series. You can hear spectacular talks from the comfort of your office / home / wherever!

Phyloseminar is starting a series on "Macroevolution and phylogenetics," featuring talks from Joe Felsenstein, Brian O'Meara, and me. The first talk is coming right up on Monday Jan 24 (see homepage for the time). Joe Felsenstein will be presenting "What poultry breeders and guinea pigs have to tell us about statistical nonmolecular phylogenetics" (a spectacular title, right?). Don't miss it.

You can also listen to archived phyloseminars on alignment, gene tree - species tree concordance, and infectious disease.
