The age of a clade has been estimated by using the age of its oldest fossils, the age of islands or strata that the clade is endemic to, and the age of tectonic events that are spatially related to the clade’s geographic distribution (Heads 2005a). These dates can be used to calibrate a phylogeny and to calculate the ages of other related clades. This paper focuses on the use of islands in calibration, but the two other methods are also discussed briefly.
