The Phylogenetic Handbook is a broad, hands on guide to theory and practice of nucleotide and protein phylogenetic analysis. This second edition includes six new chapters, covering topics such as Bayesian inference, tree topology testing and the impact of recombination on phylogenies, as well as a detailed section on molecular adaptation/5(31).   Since the publication of the first edition of this landmark volume more than twenty-five years ago, phylogenetic systematics has taken its place as the dominant paradigm of .

For anyone working on phylogenetics this is THE BOOK. The book covers a wide range of topics from how to plot a phylogeny, to phylogeny estimation, inference and simulation all under the R framework. The coverage with the R examples is fantastic and clear, making extrapolation to your problem particularly relatively by: A Google search for "Phylogenetics Textbook" brings up several titles of books, and some online courses etc. Can any of you add information about which books you have used and why you like them or. The bulk of the book covers what I hoped for originally: phylogenetic trees. The authors choose an unusual approach - it doesn't quite meet the authors' initial promise of math-minimization, but doesn't climb too far up the ivory tower, either. I find it a very practical, usable level of by: Felsenstein’s book [Fel04] is an encyclopedic overview of the eld by one of its primary developers, informally presented, and o ers many insightful perspectives and historical comments, as well as extensive references to original research publications. Yang [Yan06] gives a more formal presentation of statistical phylogenetics.
