The e-book starts off with a presentation of alternative R programs and offers a brief advent to R for phylogeneticists surprising with this language. the elemental phylogenetic themes are coated: manipulation of phylogenetic info, phylogeny estimation, tree drawing, phylogenetic comparative equipment, and estimation of ancestral characters. The bankruptcy on tree drawing makes use of R's robust graphical atmosphere. a bit offers with the research of diversification with phylogenies, one of many author's favourite examine subject matters. The final bankruptcy is dedicated to the improvement of phylogenetic equipment with R and interfaces with otherlanguages (C and C++). a few workouts finish those chapters.
