COULD A CLADOGRAM THIS SHORT HAVE ARISEN BY CHANCE ALONE?: ON PERMUTATION TESTS FOR CLADISTIC STRUCTURE
Abstract Absolute criteria for evaluating cladistic analyses are useful, not only because cladistic algorithms impose structure, but also because applications of cladistic results demand some… Expand
A dated molecular phylogeny for the Chironomidae (Diptera)
We provide the first highly sampled phylogeny estimate for the dipteran family Chironomidae using molecular data from fragments of two ribosomal genes (18S and 28S), one nuclear protein‐coding gene… Expand

Midges (Chironomidae, Ceratopogonidae, Chaoboridae) as a temperature proxy: a training set from Tasmania, Australia
Chironomid and ceratopogonid head capsules, along with Chaoborus mandibles, were used to model mean temperature of the warmest quarter (TWARM) in Tasmania. Our transfer function is based on midge… Expand
When molecules and morphology concur: the ‘Gondwanan’ midges (Diptera: Chironomidae)

- 1 October 2010
A phylogeny of the Chironomidae subfamily Podonominae, significant in the history of phylogenetic biogeography, is estimated from an analysis of four genes. Fragments of two ribosomal genes (18S and… Expand
Additions and corrections to the Nearctic Orthocladiinae (Diptera: Chironomidae)
Five new species, Apometriocnemus beringensis , Cricotopus (Cricotopus) bifurcatus , Doithrix dillonae , Hydrobaenus piloculus , and Paratrissocladius lawrencensis , are described. The following new… Expand
