  • Insects are the most speciose group of animals, but the phylogenetic relationships of many major lineages remain unresolved. [...] Key Result Phylogenomic analyses of nucleotide and amino acid sequences, with site-specific nucleotide or domain-specific amino acid substitution models, produced statistically robust and congruent results resolving previously controversial phylogenetic relations hips.Expand Abstract
