There are a wide variety of models for estimating the phylogenetic relationships among amino acid and nucleotide sequences sampled from organisms at the population, species, and kingdom levels (reviewed by Swofford et al. 1996). One of the assumptions of these models is that recombination has not occurred in the history of the sampled sequences. When recombination is present, the relationships may be illustrated by a bifurcating graph (fig. 1), which is a network of relationships between parts… CONTINUE READING
