New article describing new graphical methods: densityMap, contMap, and fancyTree(...,type="phenogram95")

My new article describing three new graphical methods for plotting comparative data on trees, implemented in the phytools functions densityMap (1, 2, 3, 4), contMap (1, 2, 3), and fancyTree(..., type="phenogram95") just came out "Accepted" (i.e., manuscript pages, not type-set or proofed) in Methods in Ecology & Evolution. The article is entitled Two new graphical methods for mapping trait evolution on phylogenies, which might seem like a bit of a misnomer (or perhaps a tribute to this article) given my description, above, but I think it makes sense.

The figure at right is from the paper (click for a larger version with tip labels). Thanks to Dave Collar for helpfully providing the published data & tree.
