Just FYI, there was yet another great phyloseminar, today, as part of a series of talks on using fossil data in phylogenetics (two weeks ago, Tracy Heath gave a talk on the Fossilized Birth-Death process model).
Today’s talk, which I missed but will watch later since these are always recorded, was given by Daniel Ksepka (NESCENT) and was entitled, “Including Fossil Taxa in Phylogenies: Advances and Issues”.
I suspect that a lot of people missed this talk but will want to see it! So, see http://phyloseminar.org/ for more details and a video of the talk! You can also login to Google+ and then watch Daniel’s talk, e.g. here.
