PARSIMONY JACKKNIFING OUTPERFORMS NEIGHBOR‐JOINING
Abstract— Because they are designed to produced just one tree, neighbor‐joining programs can obscure ambiguities in data. Ambiguities can be uncovered by resampling, but existing neighbor‐joiningExpand

Improvements to resampling measures of group support
Several aspects of current resampling methods to assess group support are reviewed. When the characters have different prior weights or some state transformation costs are different, the frequenciesExpand

Diversification of Neoaves: integration of molecular sequence data and fossils
Patterns of diversification and timing of evolution within Neoaves, which includes almost 95% of all bird species, are virtually unknown. On the other hand, molecular data consistently indicate aExpand

Phylogenetics of asterids based on 3 coding and 3 non-coding chloroplast DNA markers and the utility of non-coding DNA at higher taxonomic levels.
Asterids comprise 1/4-1/3 of all flowering plants and are classified in 10 orders and >100 families. The phylogeny of asterids is here explored with jackknife parsimony analysis of chloroplast DNAExpand

An ordinal classification for the families of flowering plants
Recent cladistic analyses are revealing the phylogeny of flowering plants in increasing detail, and there is support for the monophyly of many major groups above the family level. With many elementsExpand

Phylogenetic relationships in the order Ericales s.l.: analyses of molecular data from five genes from the plastid and mitochondrial genomes.
Phylogenetic interrelationships in the enlarged order Ericales were investigated by jackknife analysis of a combination of DNA sequences from the plastid genes rbcL, ndhF, atpB, and the mitochondrialExpand

SKEWNESS AND PERMUTATION
Abstract— The skewness criterion of phylogenetic structure in data is too sensitive to character state frequencies, is not sensitive enough to number of characters (degree of corroboration) andExpand
