This R package implements the multidivtime approach for molecular dating by connecting the C programs 'baselm' (written by Ziheng Yang), 'estbranches' (written by Jeffrey Thorne), and 'multidivtime' (also written by J. Thorne) in a pipeline. These programs are not part of the package and must be installed separately.

LAGOPUS includes functions for formatting and checking the input data, setting priors, carrying out the multidivtime analysis, and displaying the output.


Version 1.4-7 is a recompilation (29 April 2013) for R 3.0.0 and does not contain modifications compared to 1.4-6.
