I was wondering if someone could explain the concept of using max. likelihood to construct phylogenies. Mostly, why is it such a strong technique and what does it actually do? I'm writing a short report on a great apes phylogeny and I've done a parsimony analysis and a max likelihood, trees are rooted with baboon.
Thanks for any help.
