The contributions of Joseph Felsenstein to the theory and practice of phylogenetic inference are well known. Felsenstein advanced the use of likelihood. Joe Felsenstein has had more positive influence on the statistical revolution of phylogenetics than any other researcher in the field. For that. Joseph Felsenstein, Inferring Phylogenies, Sinauer Assoc., , pp. xx + This is an important and very useful book that should be of interest to many.

Calvin rated it really liked it Apr 06, Books by Joseph Felsenstein. Finally the attitude of the author strike one as arrogant and contemptuous one can really sense the sneer as he mentions we mere biologists – an attitude that sadly does the bioinformaticians no favours.
Holmes, The Quarterly Review of Biology. Beginning with fundamental issues, such as the counting of evolutionary changes chapter 2the book goes on to cover various categories of inference algorithms parsimony methods in chapters 1 and 7, distance methods in chapter 11, and likelihood methods in chapter 16as well as their specific implementations.
Also covered are restriction sites, RAPDs, and microsatellites. Jan 11, J.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia.
Statistical properties of parsimony Inferring Phylogenies explains clearly the assumptions and logic of making inferences about p Phylogenies evolutionary trees are basic to thinking about and analyzing differences between species.
There are not enough worked examples in the text to clarify the endless equations presented. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. Thanks for telling us about the felsenstien.
The major problem with the book is in the presentation. Karen Siu-ting rated it really liked it Oct 21, Yet no book had summarized this work. SinauerOct 6, – Science – pages.

Jana Athanasia inferrign it liked it Mar 10, Although the book does not offer much help in the logistics of data analysis, it does constitute a well-organized felsensteij that will inform study design and allow the critical interpretation of studies that have already been done.
Over 30 years ago Crow and Kimura produced what has become the cornerstone of theoretical population genetics.
After several false starts I finally read this cover to cover.
There is a lot of useful information on approaches to phylogeny and how to test various hypothesis and parameters related to evolutionary processes using phylogenetic approaches.
