PARSIMONY JACKKNIFING OUTPERFORMS NEIGHBOR‐JOINING
TLDR
For analysis of large matrices, parsimony jackknifing is hundreds of thousands of times faster than extensive branch‐swapping, yet is better able to screen out poorly‐supported groups.
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 frequencies
Diversification of Neoaves: integration of molecular sequence data and fossils
TLDR
The calibration results suggest that Neoaves, after an initial split from Galloanseres in Mid-Cretaceous, diversified around or soon after the K/T boundary, and show that there is no solid molecular evidence for an extensive pre-Tertiary radiation of Neoaves.

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.
TLDR
The analysis has contributed to reclassification of several families, e.g., Tetrameristaceae, Ebenaceae, Styracaceae, Montiniaceae, Orobanchaceae, and Scrophulariaceae (by inclusion of Pellicieraceae, Lissocarpaceae, Halesiaceae, Kaliphoraceae, Cyclocheilaceae, respectively), and to the placement of families that were unplaced in the APG-system.
PERMUTATIONS
Permutations of finite sets play a central role in algebraic and enumerative combinatorics. In addition to having many interesting enumerative properties per se, permutations also arise in almost
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 elements
Phylogenetic relationships in the order Ericales s.l.: analyses of molecular data from five genes from the plastid and mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
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 mitochondrial genes atp1 and matR, and none of them alone fully resolved the relationships between all major clades.
