phylotaR: An automated pipeline for retrieving orthologous DNA sequences from GenBank in R

Access content Open-access! Abstract: The exceptional increase in molecular DNA sequence data in open repositories is mirrored by an ever-growing interest among evolutionary biologists to harvest and use those data for phylogenetic inference.

Quantifying the living fossil concept

Access content Open-access! Abstract: “Living fossil” is a contentious label, often used to identify clades that have experienced particularly little evolutionary change. Many of the problems associated with the term are due to a lack of a clear definition.

Evolutionarily distinct “living fossils” require both lower speciation and lower extinction rates

Access content Pay-walled :-( Abstract: As a label for a distinct category of life, “living fossil” is controversial. The term has multiple definitions, and it is unclear whether the label can be genuinely used to delimit biodiversity.
