Základy fylogenetické analýzy

Title in English Essentials of Phylogenetic Analysis


Type Monograph
Description Current development of biological sciences clearly shows not only the rapid development of methods of phylogeny reconstruction (phylogenetics), but also their penetration into other areas. This applies particularly to methods based on Bayesian methodology and coalescent theory that make essential parts of many computer programmes designed for other than phylogenetic analysis (population genetics, ecology, morphometry, etc.). The textbook guides students through the subject starting with data types and sequences through the explanation of methodology and the demonstration of evolutionary models to a detailed interpretation of Bayesian phylogenetic analysis and its use. The textbook reflects the current tumultuous development in phylogenetics, and as there is no such title on the Czech market, it will certainly be welcomed not only by students but also by professionals.
