  • Anderson(2008)recentlyreviewedthecontroversialtopicofextant amphibian origins, on which three (groups of)hypotheses exist at the moment. Anderson favors the‘‘polyphyly hypothesis’’ (PH), which considers the extantamphibians to be polyphyletic with respect to many Paleo-zoic limbed vertebrates and was most recently supported bythe analysis of Anderson et al. (2008). Another is the‘‘temnospondyl hypothesis’’ (TH—lissamphibians nestedwithintemnospondyls),mostrecentlysupportedbyRutaandCoates (2007… CONTINUE READING
