Because of extinction, undiscovered species, and constraints of time, money and material, most molecular phylogenetic analyses are performed without extensive coverage of the group of interest. The degree of taxonomic coverage can affect hypotheses of tree topology (e.g., Gauthier, Kluge, and Rowe 1988), ancestral state assignment (Sanderson 1996), character evolution (Donoghue et al. 1989), and character correlation (SillénTullberg 1993). Studies are beginning to examine the effect of taxon… CONTINUE READING
