Updates to plotTree() and plotSimmap(); new phylogenetics movie

I just fixed a bug in plotTree(). It is the same bug as was described for plotSimmap() here (and solved). The new version of this function can be downloaded from my R phylogenetics page (direct link to code here).

I also added the option to plot no tip labels in plotSimmap(). This is accomplished by setting ftype="off". Code here.

Finally, I just spotted a poster for what I can only assume is a movie about phylogenetics. I snapped a photo on my smartphone:

Coming soon to a theater near you!


  1. I understand that there ARE dinosaurs in it. That's enough reason for me.

  2. I can't wait to see it! Supposed to be totally nuts, beautiful and interesting all at once.
