  • It is often assumed that homoplasy makes cladistic results uncertain. The minimum values that the consistency index C (Kluge and Fart-is, 1969) can achieve on most parsimonious trees decrease with number of taxa and have a more complex dependence with number of characters. Those minimum values have never been calculated, and therefore it is not known which values of C would indicate that there is as much homoplasy as is possible in a data set of a given size. Several authors have examined this… CONTINUE READING
