This program simulates phylogenies and fossil occurrence times under the serial-sampled birth-death process of Stadler (J. Ther. Biol, 2010).

Complete trees are generated under a constant-rate birth-death process using the generalized sampling approach (Hartmann, Wong, & Stadler Syst. Biol. 2010; Stadler Syst. Biol. 2011). Then, fossilization events are simulated according to a Poisson process with rate parameter ψ.
