  • Participants: Alfaro, Harmon, Hipp, Hunt
  • Targets/Accomplishments
    • Evaluated the results of continuous character analyses in different packages, and corrected some errors
    • Clarified why one sometimes gets different results from different programs
    • Modified GEIGER package so that results for fitting models of character evolution are more robust
    • Modified functions to rescale trees and variance-covariance matrices for non-ultrametric trees
