BayesRate is a program to estimate speciation and extinction rates from dated phylogenies in a Bayesian framework.
The methods are described in:
Silvestro, D., Schnitzler, J. and Zizka, G. (2011) A Bayesian framework to estimate diversification rates and their variation through time and space. BMC Evolutionary Biology, 11, 311
Silvestro D., Zizka G. & Schulte K. (2014) Disentangling the effects of key innovations on the diversification of Bromelioideae (Bromeliaceae). Evolution, 68, 163-175.
- Since version 1.64 BayesRate requires Dendropy v. 4 (v. 3 no longer supported)
- Since version 1.3, Python library DendroPy is required instead of rpy2
- Added BiSSE-BMA since version 1.5 (Silvestro et al. 2013; DOI: 10.1111/evo.12236)
Very useful. Thanks.
