Abstract Cladograms for the same group of taxa derived using different datasets often agree extensively but are seldom identical. This disagreement may be due to the fact that cladograms are sampling estimates of the true phylogeny and as a result may differ only because of sampling error. A protocol is proposed to test the null hypothesis that two trees estimate the true or parametric phylogeny and are no more different than would be expected due to sampling error. In the event that the null… Expand
Tree disagreement: Measuring and testing incongruence in phylogenies
  • P. Planet
  • Computer Science, Biology
  • J. Biomed. Informatics
  • 2006
TLDR
The different incongruence tests are reviewed and used to test the phylogenetic discord of a potentially mobile genetic element in the gamma-proteobacteria and how these tests may be used for phylogenetic analysis that accounts for horizontal transfer and duplication events as explanations for homoplasy is considered. Expand
A Likelihood Ratio Test to Detect Conflicting Phylogenetic Signal
TLDR
A novel likelihood ratio test is described that compares different topologies (each estimated from a different data partition for the same taxa) to determine if they are significantly different, and indicates that different genes provide significantly different phylogenies for amniotes, supporting earlier suggestions based on less direct tests.

TESTING SPECIES PHYLOGENIES AND PHYLOGENETIC METHODS WITH CONGRUENCE
TLDR
A combination of testing with the well-supported trees of natural groups, with simulations, and with those laboratory and domesticated taxa with known phylogenies is most likely to prove effective in establishing the strengths, weaknesses, and assump­ tions of different phylogenetic methods. Expand
Maximum likelihood ancestral state reconstruction is implemented in PAML and PAUP
A phylogeny is a set of relationships among groups of genes or organisms that reflects their evolutionary history. Inferring a phylogeny is an estimation procedure, a statistical inference of a trueExpand
DATA SET INCONGRUENCE, MISLEADING CHARACTERS, AND INSIGHTS FROM THE FOSSIL RECORD: THE CANID PHYLOGENY
TLDR
This paper explores the usefulness of the known fossil record for assessing the accuracy of conflicting sister taxa hypotheses, and in identifying and accounting for misleading characters (MCs) in the phylogeny of the Caninae using morphological and mtDNA data sets. Expand
Combining data sets with different phylogenetic histories.
  • J. Wiens
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Systematic biology
  • 1998
TLDR
A simple methodology for dealing with the possibility that two data sets may have different underlying phylogenetic histories is proposed, and computer simulations suggest that the accuracy of combined analysis for recovering the true species phylogeny may exceed that of either of two separately analyzed data sets under some conditions. Expand
Congruence versus phylogenetic accuracy: revisiting the incongruence length difference test.
TLDR
The Yoder et al. (2001) critiqued the ILD test based on the observation that it will sometimes identify data partitions as incongruent when in fact those partitions combine to produce an accurate estimate of organismal phylogeny. Expand
INTEGRATION OF MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR DATA SETS IN ESTIMATING FUNGAL PHYLOGENIES
TLDR
Three tests are compared: a protocol described by Rodrigo et al., an adapted version of Faith's T-PTP test, and Kishino and Hasegawa's likelihood test, which were empirically evaluated to test for heterogeneity among data sets. Expand
Total evidence requires exclusion of phylogenetically misleading data
TLDR
It is suggested that separate analyses constitute an important exploratory investigation, while the phylogenetic tree itself should be produced by a final combined analysis of all relevant data. Expand
Evaluating Phylogenetic Congruence in the Post-Genomic Era
TLDR
This work proposes the development of novel incongruence assessment methods suitable for the analysis of the molecular evolution of the vast majority of life and support the investigation of homogeneity of evolutionary process in cases where markers do not share identical tree structures. Expand

The recently‐developed statistical method known as the “bootstrap” can be used to place confidence intervals on phylogenies and shows significant evidence for a group if it is defined by three or more characters. Expand

Estimating the reliability of evolutionary trees.
TLDR
Six protein sequences from the same 11 mammalian taxa were used to estimate the accuracy and reliability of phylogenetic trees using real, rather than simulated, data and it was concluded that it is possible to give a reasonable estimate of the reliability of the final tree, at least when several sequences are combined.
