Several authors have recently revived the old ethological claim that behavioural characters could be used to provide accurate estimates of phylogeny. To test this contention we constructed a behavioural data set for the pelecaniforms based upon van Tets' (1965, Ornithol. Monogr., 2, 1-88) classic comparative study of their social behaviour. Parsimony analysis of the resulting 20 taxa, 37-character data set produced 12 shortest trees. These trees fitted the behavioural data well. A permutation… Expand
