[…] ion [, ]. Species-tree aware methods are sensitive to errors in reconstructed species trees; however, resources such as TimeTree [] and recent species tree reconstruction methods, such as Phyldog and MixTreEM [, ], appears to be sufficiently reliable.For future work, extending the model to incorporate even more biological knowledge is of interest. In particular, being able to distinguish incomplet […]
