A revised dated phylogeny of the arachnid order Opiliones

  title={A revised dated phylogeny of the arachnid order Opiliones},
  author={Prashant P Sharma and Gonzalo Giribet},
  booktitle={Front. Genet.},
Dating the Opiliones tree of life has become an important enterprise for this group of arthropods, due to their ancient origins and important biogeographic implications. To incorporate both methodological innovations in molecular dating as well as new systematic discoveries of harvestman diversity, we conducted total evidence dating on a data set uniting morphological and/or molecular sequence data for 47 Opiliones species, including all four well-known Palaeozoic fossils, to test the placement… CONTINUE READING
