THE AMPHIBIAN TREE OF LIFE
Abstract The evidentiary basis of the currently accepted classification of living amphibians is discussed and shown not to warrant the degree of authority conferred on it by use and tradition. A newExpand

Broad phylogenomic sampling improves resolution of the animal tree of life
Long-held ideas regarding the evolutionary relationships among animals have recently been upended by sometimes controversial hypotheses based largely on insights from molecular data. These newExpand

SYSTEMATIC REVIEW OF THE FROG FAMILY HYLIDAE, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO HYLINAE: PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS AND TAXONOMIC REVISION
Abstract Hylidae is a large family of American, Australopapuan, and temperate Eurasian treefrogs of approximately 870 known species, divided among four subfamilies. Although some groups of HylidaeExpand

OPTIMIZATION ALIGNMENT: THE END OF MULTIPLE SEQUENCE ALIGNMENT IN PHYLOGENETICS?
A method is described to assess directly the number of DNA sequence transformations, evolutionary events, required by a phylogenetic topology without the use of multiple sequence alignment. This isExpand

PHYLOGENETIC SYSTEMATICS OF DART-POISON FROGS AND THEIR RELATIVES (AMPHIBIA: ATHESPHATANURA: DENDROBATIDAE)
Abstract The known diversity of dart-poison frog species has grown from 70 in the 1960s to 247 at present, with no sign that the discovery of new species will wane in the foreseeable future. AlthoughExpand

Assessing the root of bilaterian animals with scalable phylogenomic methods
A clear picture of animal relationships is a prerequisite to understand how the morphological and ecological diversity of animals evolved over time. Among others, the placement of the acoelomorphExpand

POY version 4: phylogenetic analysis using dynamic homologies
We present POY version 4, an open source program for the phylogenetic analysis of morphological, prealigned sequence, unaligned sequence, and genomic data. POY allows phylogenetic inference when notExpand

The Strepsiptera problem: phylogeny of the holometabolous insect orders inferred from 18S and 28S ribosomal DNA sequences and morphology.
Phylogenetic relationships among the holometabolous insect orders were inferred from cladistic analysis of nucleotide sequences of 18S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) (85 exemplars) and 28S rDNA (52 exemplars)Expand

SEQUENCE ALIGNMENT, PARAMETER SENSITIVITY, AND THE PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF MOLECULAR DATA
The dependence of the results of molecular phylogenetic sequence analysis (both align­ ment and cladogram construction) on variation in analytical parameters is examined. Phylogenetic analyses ofExpand

The Phylogeny of the Extant Hexapod Orders
Morphological and molecular data are marshalled to address the question of hexapod ordinal relationships. The combination of 275 morphological variables, 1000 bases of the small subunit nuclear rDNAExpand
