With a stronger focus on hypothesis testing, elaborate practical sections and recent versions of sequence analysis and software, this edition includes six new chapters. Topics on Bayesian inference, tree topology testing and the impact of recombination on phylogenies have been added as well as a detailed section on molecular adaptation.

"This impressive handbook provides unparalleled coverage of the practice of turning genetic data into sensible statements about evolutionary history and processes. Intended as a hands-on resource for the student or professional scientists who wishes to master basic phylogenetic concepts and get to grips with the software - in this regard it succeeds admirably."
- Mike Steel, Biometrics
The Phylogenetic Handbook is a broad, hands on guide to theory and practice of nucleotide and protein phylogenetic analysis. This second edition includes six new chapters, covering topics such as Bayesian inference, tree topology testing and the impact of recombination on phylogenies, as well as a detailed section on molecular adaptation. The book has a stronger focus on hypothesis testing than the previous edition, with more extensive discussions on recombination analysis, detecting molecular adaptation and genealogy-based population genetics. Many chapters include elaborate practical sections, which have been updated to introduce the reader to the most recent versions of sequence analysis and phylogeny software, including BLAST, FastA, Clustal, T-coffee, Muscle, DAMBE, Tree-puzzle, Phylip, MEGA, PAUP*, IQPNNI, CONSEL, ModelTest, Prottest, PAML, HYPHY, MrBayes, BEAST, LAMARC, SplitsTree, and RDP. Many analysis tools are described by their original authors, resulting in clear explanations that constitute an ideal teaching guide for advanced-level undergraduate and graduate students.
