- Coalescence theory starter pack: some key
concepts around coalescence models and estimation of their parameters.
- Spatially explicit coalescence models: spatially explicit
models involved in Decrypt rely on a forward time demographic process (reproduction
and dispersal) followed by a backward coalescence model. This part of the tutorial
will help you understanding the demographic process.
- Robustness of the MSC model: If it is possible to inform
the parameters of an explicit demographic model, we can use simulations to test
the robustness of the MSC and possibly detect levels of diversity detected by the MSC that
can not be explained by a spatially explicit model.
