PMID: 28931016
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0178389

[…] selection was based on the difference in aic scores between the best-fitting rate-constant and rate-variable models (δaicrc). the calculations were performed using laser 2.3 []. we further used treepar [] to identify the locations of temporal shifts in diversification rates of lagochilus. treepar analyses were run with a grid setting of 0.1 million years with both yule and birth-death […]

[…] rate fitting as a function of time, to compare the dynamics of diversification and highlight potential signs of delayed rise after the paleopolyploidy., the first method that we used was treepar [], which can estimate diversification rates across time ranges on a phylogenetic tree. we have previously shown that this method is robust to mass extinctions, as have affected […]

DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2017.0095

[…] we investigated diversification dynamics in the fungus-farming ants using two approaches. we tested for significant shifts in diversification rates across the entire tree using the r package treepar [], which is an ml-based program that allows for non-constant diversification rates and incomplete taxon sampling. we also tested for rate shifts among lineages using the bayesian program […]

[…] for all trees, maximum-likelihood estimates of diversification rate λ − μ and turnover μ/λ before and after the rate shift, together with the time of the rate shifts, have been obtained using treepar v. 3.3 function bd.shifts.optim [] with the ‘groups’ option. this function employs equation (3.1) below., the code required to perform our analyses is provided in the electronic supplementary […]

[…] and exponential diversity dependence of speciation rates, exponential temperature dependence, and sgd. the mass extinction model was fitted using the |bd.shifts.optim| function in the r package treepar, which maximizes the likelihood of a model with constant speciation and extinction rates and one or more sampling events (i.e., mass extinctions) at discrete time points t1,t2,…,tn […]
