Methods for reconstructing evolutionary history are sensitive to the number and position of taxa included in the analysis (e.g., Gauthier et al., 1988; Hendy and Penny, 1989; Lecointre et al., 1993; Poe, 1998). Figure 1 illustrates this phenomenon using parsimony analyses of a sample of four Anolis lizard species from a large matrix of morphological and molecular data (Poe, 2001). Any of the three possible relationships for these species can be obtained by including appropriate additional… CONTINUE READING
