Paper for October 6

Hi everyone,

I've attached the paper for next week.  This particular paper is a bit methods heavy, but I thought it appropriate because the issues it addresses (rate heterogeneity, short branch lengths) are applicable to a wide range of datasets.  The diversification story is really cool too, so I'll give a bit more background on Monday than the paper covers.  Here's the link:

I won't be in class tomorrow

Hi Everyone,

Sorry, but I won't be in Phylogenetics class tomorrow.  iDigBio is hosting a Data Carpentry workshop, and I'm giving an opening talk.  I don't expect to be done and able to get back to Bartram/Carr in time.

The paper looks good, though, so don't leave Nate hanging!

Paper for Monday Sept. 22.

Ishita will be leading a discussion on a paper that HAS NOT YET BEEN PUBLISHED! Therefore, you can download it HERE but you have no permission whatsoever to share it with anyone outside this class. The paper has passed the first round of reviews and it is currently being revised by the authors for publication in the New Phytologist.  Let's have fun with it.

Important: Change in schedule of presentations

Dear All,

One student had to drop from the class and she had signed up to give her presentation on Sept. 15.  So, I shifted everyone up one week.  I edited the schedule I posted last week.  Let us know if there is any reason why you can't make it.  Mark your calendar!  Sorry about this.
