Total swedish dating

Sweden is part of the geographical area of Fennoscandia.The climate is in general very mild for its northerly latitude due to significant maritime influence, that in spite of this still retains warm continental summers.Sweden consequently has a low population density of 22 inhabitants per square kilometre (57/sq mi), with the highest concentration in the southern half of the country.Approximately 85% of the population lives in urban areas. It borders Norway to the west and Finland to the east, and is connected to Denmark in the southwest by a bridge-tunnel across the Öresund.At 450,295 square kilometres (173,860 sq mi), Sweden is the third-largest country in the European Union by area, with a total population of 10.0 million.

By exploring a variety of FBD model assumptions, we show that it is mainly the accommodation of diversified sampling that causes the push toward more recent divergence times.We verify the implementation using simulations and apply it to the early radiation of Hymenoptera (wasps, ants, and bees).Previous total-evidence dating analyses of this data set were based on a simple uniform tree prior and dated the initial radiation of extant Hymenoptera to the late Carboniferous (309 Ma).Here, we take advantage of this and expand the analysis to include information about fossilization and sampling processes.Our work is based on the recently described fossilized birth–death (FBD) process, which has been used to model speciation, extinction, and fossilization rates that can vary over time in a piecewise manner.
