Extinction can be estimated from moderately sized molecular phylogenies

There has been some debate as to whether extinction rates can be estimated from phylogenies alone. This paper claims that it is still possible with some caveats. Even though this paper seems sort of niche, I think it is important to be caught up on this debate J. I will try to frame the debate at the beginning of the lab meeting, if some people feel lost. 

We are meeting in Darwin now Tuesday 10.00. I will bring fika.
