Infers trees in which sampled individuals can be direct ancestors of other sampled individuals. This method allows the detection of sampled ancestors as well as the estimation of the probability that an individual will be removed from the process when it is sampled. sampled-ancestors was applied to infer divergence times and diversification rates when fossils are included along with extant species samples, so that fossilisation events are modelled as a part of the tree branching process.
