Cetaceans are remarkable among mammals for their numerous adaptations to an entirely aquatic existence, yet many aspects of their phylogeny remain unresolved. Here we merged 37 new sequences from the nuclear genes RAG1 and PRM1 with most published molecular data for the group (45 nuclear loci, transposons, mitochondrial genomes), and generated a supermatrix consisting of 42,335 characters. The great majority of these data have never been combined. Model-based analyses of the supermatrix… Expand
Cetartiodactyla: Updating a time-calibrated molecular phylogeny.
TLDR
All mitochondrial genetic data available in GenBank is gathered to build a robust Cetartiodactyla calibrated phylogenetic tree using 21 fossil calibration points and the major lineages showed robust support and families divergence times are congruent with the available fossil evidence and with previously published phylogenetic hypotheses. Expand
A supermatrix analysis of genomic, morphological, and paleontological data from crown Cetacea
TLDR
The parsimony analysis of the supermatrix and the analysis of morphology constrained to fit the ML/Bayesian molecular tree yielded broadly congruent phylogenetic hypotheses, implying that many character states shared by river dolphins evolved in their oceanic ancestors, contradicting the hypothesis that these characters are convergent adaptations to fluvial habitats.

A Total-Group Phylogenetic Metatree for Cetacea and the Importance of Fossil Data in Diversification Analyses.
TLDR
The metatree approach provides the most immediate route for generating higher level phylogenies of extinct taxa, and opens the door to re-evaluation of macroevolutionary hypotheses derived only from extant taxa. Expand
Extensive Interspecific Gene Flow Shaped Complex Evolutionary History and Underestimated Species Diversity in Rapidly Radiated Dolphins

Recently diverged taxa are often characterized by high rates of hybridization, which can complicate phylogenetic reconstruction. For this reason, the phylogenetic relationships and evolutionaryExpand
A Total-Group Phylogenetic Metatree for Cetacea and the Importance of Fossil Data in Diversification Analyses
TLDR
This work extends and applies a recently developed meta–analytic approach for synthesizing previously published phylogenetic studies to infer a well–resolved set of species level, time–scaled phylogenetic hypotheses for extinct and extant cetaceans (whales, dolphins and allies). Expand
Species tree of a recent radiation: the subfamily Delphininae (Cetacea, Mammalia).
TLDR
Using coalescent-based methods, an underlying species-tree signal is extracted from divergent histories of independent genes in the Delphininae for the first time, and illustrates how methods of species- tree inference can be very sensitive both to the characteristics of the dataset and the evolutionary processes affecting the evolution of the group under study. Expand
Phylogenomic analyses and improved resolution of Cetartiodactyla.
TLDR
The present study provides a statistically well-supported phylogenetic framework of Cetartiodactyla, which represents an important step toward ending some of the often-heated, century-long debate on their evolution. Expand
Phylogenetic Status and Timescale for the Diversification of Steno and Sotalia Dolphins
TLDR
It is hypothesised that the timing of separation of the marine and Amazonian Sotalia species (2.3 Ma) coincided with the establishment of the modern Amazon River basin and it is concluded that Orcinus does not belong in the Globicephalinae, but Orcaella may be part of that subfamily. Expand
Odontoceti phylogeny and divergence data resolved: evidence from nuclear genes and complete mitochondrial genomes of Neophocaena phocaenoides
TLDR
The analysis of divergence dates suggested that the main Odontocete lineages diversified in Oligocene and Miocene and confirmed that Delphinoidea originated in the Early Miocene. Expand
Whale phylogeny and rapid radiation events revealed using novel retroposed elements and their flanking sequences
TLDR
This study demonstrated that the SINE-based approach is a powerful tool in phylogenetic studies, and identifying additional SINE elements that resolve the relationships in the superfamily Delphinoidea and family Delphinidae will be important steps forward in completely resolving cetacean phylogenetic relationships inThe future.

Seven new dolphin mitochondrial genomes and a time-calibrated phylogeny of whales
TLDR
By collecting and analyzing seven new mitochondrial genomes, this work provides strong evidence that the delphinid genera Tursiops and Stenella are not monophyletic, and the current taxonomy masks potentially interesting patterns of morphological, physiological, behavioral, and ecological evolution. Expand
Impact of increased character sampling on the phylogeny of Cetartiodactyla (Mammalia): combined analysis including fossils
The phylogenetic position of Cetacea (whales, dolphins and porpoises) is an important exemplar problem for combined data parsimony analyses because the clade is ancient and includes many well‐knownExpand
The phylogeny of Cetartiodactyla: the importance of dense taxon sampling, missing data, and the remarkable promise of cytochrome b to provide reliable species-level phylogenies.
TLDR
The new phylogenetic hypotheses provided here represent the currently best available tool for comparative species-level studies within Cetartiodactyla and are recommended awaiting a better supported phylogeny based on more character data to reconsider classification and taxonomy within this group. Expand
Cytochrome b and Bayesian inference of whale phylogeny.
TLDR
The results provide the most detailed phylogeny of Cetacea to date and highlight the utility of both Bayesian methodology in general, and of Cytb in cetacean phylogenetics, and suggest that dense taxon sampling, like dense character sampling, can overcome problems in phylogenetic reconstruction. Expand
Cytochrome b nucleotide sequences and the identification of five primary lineages of extant cetaceans.
TLDR
The level of divergence among the five cetacean lineages, and that seen between cetraceans and artiodactyls, suggests that cetACEans andArtiodactylls had a common ancestor approximately 60 Mya. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and the origins of placental mammals
TLDR
The potential weaknesses of limited character and taxon sampling are addressed in a comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis of 64 species sampled across all extant orders of placental mammals, providing new insight into the pattern of the early placental mammal radiation. Expand
Mitochondrial phylogenetics and evolution of mysticete whales.
TLDR
The mtDNA analysis suggests that four lineages exist within the clade of Eschrichtiidae + Balaenopteridae, including a sister relationship between the humpback and fin whales, and a monophyletic group formed by the blue, sei, and Bryde's whales, each of which represents a newly recognized phylogenetic relationship in Mysticeti.

Phylogenetic Relationships Among Cetaceans Revealed by Y-Chromosome Sequences
TLDR
The low homoplasy exhibited by the Y-chromosome data presented here suggests that an extended data set incorporating longer sequences would provide better resolution of cetacean lower-level pylogeny. Expand
Mitogenomic analyses provide new insights into cetacean origin and evolution.
TLDR
The results suggest that the ancestors of recent cetaceans had an explosive evolutionary radiation 30-35 million years before present, and that the claimed morphological similarities between Mesonychia and Cetacea are the result of evolutionary convergence rather than common ancestry. Expand
Revised phylogeny of whales suggested by mitochondrial ribosomal DNA sequences
TLDR
The determination of DNA sequences from two mitochondrial ribosomal gene segments for 16 species of cetaceans, a perissodactyl and a sloth, are reported and the first phylogeny for whales and dolphins based on explicit cladistic methods is constructed, confirming that cetACEans are closely related to artiodactyls and that all families and superfamilies of cetus are monophyletic.
