About this book

Presents statistical methods that are useful in the study of molecular evolution, and illustrates how to use them in actual data analysis. It is appropriate for graduate students and researchers (assuming a basic knowledge of evolution, molecular biology, and elementary statistics), allowing many investigators to incorporate refined statistical analysis of large-scale data in their own work.

It is worth its price Plant Systematics and Evolution


Contents

Molecular basis of evolution; evolutionary changes of amino acid sequences; evolutionary changes of DNA sequences; synonymous and nonsynonymous nucleotide subsitutions; phylogenetic trees; phylogenetic inference - distance methods; phylogenetic inference - maximum parsimony methods; phylogenetic inference - maximum likelihood methods; accuracies and statistical tests of phylogenetic trees; molecular clocks and linearized trees; ancestral nucleotide and amino acid sequences; genetic polymorphism and evolution; population trees from genetic markers; perspectives. Appendices: mathematical symbols and notations; geological timescale; geological events in the cenozoic and mesozoic eras; evolution of organisms based on the fossil record.
