Two characters are stratigraphically compatible if some phylogenies indicate that their combinations (state-pairs) evolved without homoplasy and in an order consistent with the fossil record. Simulations assuming independent character change indicate that we expect approximately 95% of compatible character pairs to also be stratigraphically compatible over… (More)
In this chapter we discuss the contributions of F.R. McMorris to discrete mathematics and its applications on the occasion of his retirement in 2008.
