When Molecules and Morphology Clash: A Phylogenetic Analysis of the North American Ambystomatid Salamanders (Caudata: Ambystomatidae)
Extremely conflicting phylogenetic conclusions for the same taxa derived from different data sets are rare. When conflicts do occur, they may result from homoplasy as well as nonindependence ofExpand
