Fossils and seed plant phylogeny reanalyzed

  title={Fossils and seed plant phylogeny reanalyzed},
  author={James A. Doyle and Michael J. Donoghue},
In a cladistic analysis of Recent seed plants, Loconte and Stevenson (1990) obtained results that conflict with our 1986 analysis of both extant and fossil groups and argued that fossil data had led us to incorrect conclusions. To explore this result and the general influence of fossils on phylogeny reconstruction, we assembled new “Recent” and “Complete” (extant plus fossil) data sets incorporating new data, advances in treatment of characters, and those changes of Loconte and Stevenson that… CONTINUE READING
