Recent computational and modeling advances have produced methods
for estimating species trees directly, avoiding the problems and
limitations of the traditional phylogenetic paradigm where an
estimated gene tree is equated with the history of species
divergence. The overarching goal of the volume is to increase the
visibility and use of these new methods by the entire phylogenetic
community by specifically addressing several challenges: (i) firm
understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the methodology,
(ii) empirical examples demonstrating the utility of the
methodology as well as its limitations, and (iii) attention to
technical aspects involved in the actual software implementation of
the methodology. As such, this volume will not only be poised to
become the quintessential guide to training the next generation of
researchers, but it will also be instrumental in ushering in a new
phylogenetic paradigm for the 21st century.
