The contributions of Joseph Felsenstein to the theory and practice of phylogenetic inference are well known. Felsenstein advanced the use of likelihood. Joe Felsenstein has had more positive influence on the statistical revolution of phylogenetics than any other researcher in the field. For that. Joseph Felsenstein, Inferring Phylogenies, Sinauer Assoc., , pp. xx + This is an important and very useful book that should be of interest to many.

Inferring Phylogenies by Joseph Felsenstein

Also covered are restriction sites, RAPDs, and microsatellites. It is hard to imagine how any lab could function without this book.

Damian Satterthwaite-Phillips rated it really liked it Dec 23, Although the book does not offer much help in the logistics of data analysis, it does constitute a well-organized resource that will inform study design and allow the critical interpretation of studies that have already been done. Felsenstein has now given us the definitive resource for anyone interested in phylogenetics.
