Conservation evaluation and phylogenetic diversity
Protecting biological diversity with limited resources may require placing conservation priorities on different taxa. A system of priorities that reflects the value of taxonomic diversity can beExpand

COULD A CLADOGRAM THIS SHORT HAVE ARISEN BY CHANCE ALONE?: ON PERMUTATION TESTS FOR CLADISTIC STRUCTURE
Abstract Absolute criteria for evaluating cladistic analyses are useful, not only because cladistic algorithms impose structure, but also because applications of cladistic results demand someExpand

Preserving the evolutionary potential of floras in biodiversity hotspots
One of the biggest challenges for conservation biology is to provide conservation planners with ways to prioritize effort. Much attention has been focused on biodiversity hotspots. However, theExpand

Cladistic permutation tests for monophyly and nonmonophyly
Recent work on randomization or permutation tests for cladistic structure (Archie, 1989a, 1989b; Faith, 1990; Faith and Cranston, 1991) has revealed some dramatic cases in which apparentlyExpand

Biodiversity conservation planning tools
Species extinctions and the deterioration of other biodiversity features worldwide have led to the adoption of systematic conservation planning in many regions of the world. As a consequence, variousExpand
