There has been much discussion i the recent systematic literature over whether different data sets bearing on phylogenetic relationships hould be analyzed separately or combined and analyzed simultaneously. We review arguments in favor of each of these views. Assuming that the goal is to uncover the true phylogeny of the entities in question, arguments for combining data based on the notions that one should use the "total evidence" available, or that the combined analysis gives the free with… CONTINUE READING
