Phyloseminar with Brian O’Meara at UTK

This Fall 2015 I have the opportunity to teach with Dr. Brian O’Meara a diversification seminar as part of his Phyloseminar series. It is a mix of articles and R tutorials about use of models and statistical tools to estimate speciation and extinction rates in a phylogenetic context.
