The authors describe the models and their properties, focusing on unstructured and structured antedependence individually, and then present inference procedures for the models in chapters that cover informal model identification via simple summary statistics and graphical methods, maximum likelihood and residual maximum likelihood estimation of parameters, likelihood ratio tests and penalized likelihood model selection criteria for the model's covariance structure, and mean structure.
Phylogenetic trees were produced with a maximum likelihood method incorporating the GTR+ [GAMMA]+I model of nucleotide substitution, with the general time-reversible (GTR) substitution matrix, the base composition, the gamma ([GAMMA]) distribution of among-site rate variation, and the proportion of invariant sites (I) all estimated from the data.
