Phylogenetic signal, phase translations and limits to resolving deep divergences
In this chapter we review some recent results that shed light on a fundamental question in molecular systematics: how much phylogenetic 'signal' can we expect from characters that have evolved under some Markov process? We describe some explicit and easily-computable bounds on this information, both for finite-state and infinite-state models.
