Editor's Choice Free Access

In this issue: Problems and Cautions With Sequence Mismatch Analysis and Bayesian Skyline Plots to Infer Historical Demography. Invited Review from Stewart Grant. Coupling population history with climate change is essential for constructing evolutionary and biogeographic scenarios that illuminate the mechanisms shaping species’ diversity.

But molecular clocks calibrated with phylogenetic divergences can overestimate the timings of population-level events. Overestimates disconnect historical population reconstructions from climatic history and confound our understanding of the factors influencing genetic variability.
