Phylogeny as a Central Principle in Taxonomy: Phylogenetic Definitions of Taxon Names
Defining the names of taxa in terms of common ancestry, that is, using phylogenetic definitions of taxon names, departs from a tradition of character-based definitions by granting the concept ofExpand

Phylogenetic Relationships and Tempo of Early Diversification in Anolis Lizards
We examine phylogenetic relationships among anoles using mitochondrial DNA se- quences from the NADH dehydrogenase subunit 2 gene (ND2) andve transfer-RNA genes repre- senting 1,455 alignable baseExpand
