    (see DNA Surveillance at www.dna-surveillance.auckland.ac.nz)
  • dynamics of sequences evolution in viral genomes
  • the incidence of species-level paraphyly in different groups of animals
  • the estimation of rates of molecular evolution
  • the evolution of bird song, when considered to comprise gene-like memes
  • the timing and path of human settlement of the Pacific
