<div>Hi everybody!</div> <div>Are there any of us who carry out bootstrapping during bayesian inference? I would be interested if this is a good idea and what can we expect from it?</div> <div>I met this approach in Douady & al Mol Biol Evol. 20(2): 248, 2003., and (to me at least) seems to be an intuitively easily understandable alternative for fighting with overestimation by posterior probabilites. I can understand the latter as if one would use the trees produced by a normal heuristic search as a base for clade credibility values. In fact nobody does this in "normal" ML and MP searches, but why should we do so in Bayesian analyses?</div> <div> </div> <div>Thanks,</div> <div>Laszlo</div><p>
