"This impressive handbook provides unparalleled coverage of the practice of turning genetic data into sensible statements about evolutionary history and processes. Intended as a hands-on resource for the student or professional scientists who wishes to master basic phylogenetic concepts and get to grips with the software - in this regard it succeeds admirably."
- Mike Steel, Biometrics
With a stronger focus on hypothesis testing, elaborate practical sections and recent versions of sequence analysis and software, this edition includes six new chapters. Topics on Bayesian inference, tree topology testing and the impact of recombination on phylogenies have been added as well as a detailed section on molecular adaptation.
