A measure of topological congruence which is an extension of the Mickevich–Farris character incongruence metric (i.e., ILD; Mickevich and Farris, 1981) is proposed. Group inclusion characters (1 5 member of a clade; 0 5 not a member) are constructed for each topology to be considered. The sets of characters derived from the topologies are then compared for character incongruence due to data set combination. Each homoplasy signifies a disagreement among topological statements. The value is… CONTINUE READING
