Cover for Phylogenies and trees.

Several packages have been developed to allow R-users to work with phylogenetic trees, something that most biologists will need to do at some point in their careers. The most basic is the ape package, which stands for Analysis of Phylogenetics and Evolution. This chapter gives some of the basics of ...

Cover for Phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequence data.

The goal of phylogenetics is to construct relationships that are true representations of the evolutionary history of a group of organisms or genes. The history inferred from phylogenetic analysis is usually depicted as branching in tree-like diagrams or networks. In nematology, phylogenetic studies ...

Cover for Are species concepts outdated for fungi? Intraspecific variation in plant-pathogenic fungi illustrates the need for subspecific categorization.

Precise naming of a species is very important for phytopathogenic fungi because names may carry key information for the management of the fungal diseases. Naming fungal species based on morphological traits or biological properties is outdated and unreliable. This chapter provides the...

Cover for Molecular ecology of plant-microbial interactions during invasions: progress and challenges.

Microbes are omnipresent, yet their interactions with invasive plants remain understudied. This is surprising, given the importance of microbes in plant community ecology and their influence on plant performance in new environments. Recent advances in molecular genetic approaches have opened the...
