Another journal cover

I am told that it never rains but it pours. Meteorologically this seems unlikely, but in other systems it may be true. Recently, I noted that in the past couple of months both Trends in Genetics and Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics have featured phylogenetic networks on their front covers, highlighting articles in their respective issues.

Now. I can note that Volume 190 Number 1 of Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology also illustrates a phylogenetic network. Hopefully, the widespread nature of these three journals reflects an increasing recognition of the importance of networks in phylogenetics.

The illustration is from the paper by Eva Tydén, Annie Engström, David Morrison and Johan Höglund: Sequencing of the β-tubulin genes in the ascarid nematodes Parascaris equorum and Ascaridia galli, on pages 38-43.
