It is difficult a priori to determine which parameters to choose for the standard/morphological character priors. Therefore, SIMMAP 1.5 provides an approach to approximate the best prior parameters for use in your analysis. Briefly, this approach runs an MCMC analysis in which the posterior distribution of the prior parameters are sampled. The posterior expected values can then be used for the final analysis. Before proceeding with the tutorial please read the following caveats:
