Meaning of the name tetrapoda in the scientific literature: an exchange.
TLDR
This exchange stems from an on-going debate between advocates of crown clade and apomorphybased definitions of widely used taxon names, and aims at clarifying the respective advantages of both types of definitions. Expand
The phylogenetic definition of reptilia.
TLDR
It is now apparent that some of the definitions for wellknown taxon names established early in the emergence of PN were not devised following conventions now widely accepted, by either defining groups in an overly restrictive manner, or via selection of reference taxa without due consideration of the ramifications of differing tree topologies. Expand
Focal Review: The Origin(s) of Modern Amphibians
TLDR
The present paper reviews the impact of this fossil on morphological and molecular phylogenies, and divergence timing estimates based on molecular models and the fossil record, and raises questions over either the validity of morphological analyses that support lissamphibian polyphyly or about the possibility of long branch attraction given the short internal divergences and long subsequent branches. Expand
A supertree of early tetrapods
TLDR
A genus–level supertree for early tetrapods is built using a matrix representation of 50 source trees, and a second analysis, which excludes source trees superseded by more comprehensive studies, supports a deep phylogenetic split between lissamphibian and amniote total groups. Expand
Elpistostege and the origin of the vertebrate hand
TLDR
It is suggested that the vertebrate hand arose primarily from a skeletal pattern buried within the fairly typical aquatic pectoral fin of elpistostegalians, and is potentially the sister taxon of all other tetrapods, and its appendages further blur the line between fish and land vertebrates. Expand
The earliest holometabolous insect from the Carboniferous: a “crucial” innovation with delayed success (Insecta Protomeropina Protomeropidae)
Abstract Insects dominate Earth by their diversity, and the most are Holometabola. Therefore, the holometabolous development characterised by a pupal stage between larvae and adult seems to be linkedExpand

Toward an integrated system of clade names.
TLDR
An integrated system of clade names is described based on categories of clades defined with respect to lineages that have survived to the present time, which has several advantages, including the facilitation of communication among biologists who study distantly related clades and promoting a broader conceptualization of the origins of distinctive clades of extant organisms.

Stability of higher taxa in phylogenetic nomenclature — some comments on Moore (1998)
TLDR
The suggestion that a formal code of phylogenetic nomenclature urgently needs to be drafted is well taken, and Moore is in broad agreement with the view that apomorphy-based de®nitions are not necessarily inferior to node-and stem- based de®,nitions. Expand
PHYLOGENETIC NOMENCLATURE AND PALEONTOLOGY
TLDR
Why phylogenetic nomenclature is a good thing for paleontology and ways in which the community can make the transition from typological to evolutionary systems while minimizing confusion are suggested. Expand
Stems, nodes, crown clades, and rank‐free lists: is Linnaeus dead?
  • M. Benton
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Biological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society
  • 2000
TLDR
The tenets of phylogenetic nomenclature have gained strong support among some vocal theoreticians, and rigid principles for legislative control of clade names and definitions have been outlined in the PhyloCode. Expand
Phylogenetic definitions and nomenclature of the major taxonomic categories of the carnivorous Dinosauria (Theropoda)
TLDR
The new node-based name Eumaniraptora is proposed to refer to the most recent common ancestor of Deinonychus and Neornithes and all descendants of that ancestor. Expand
Molecular evidence for the early history of living amphibians.
TLDR
Evidence from the DNA sequences of four mitochondrial genes that challenges the conventional hypothesis and supports a salamander-caecilian relationship is presented and suggests a more recent (Mesozoic) origin for salamanders and caecilians directly linked to the initial breakup of the supercontinent Pangaea. Expand
The phylogenetic trunk: maximal inclusion of taxa with missing data in an analysis of the lepospondyli (Vertebrata, Tetrapoda).
TLDR
The phylogenetic trunk approach is proposed to allow optimization of taxonomic inclusion and tree stability and finds a single most-parsimonious tree, or trunk, after the removal of one taxon identified as being problematic. Expand

TLDR
The most detailed, computer-generated phylogeny of early amphibians has been published recently, but the views Anderson expressed about the polyphyletic origin of extant amphibians and about the application of phylogenetic nomenclature are problematic. Expand
The importance of global parsimony and historical bias in understanding tetrapod evolution. Part I. Systematics, middle ear evolution and jaw suspension
Abstract A phylogenetic analysis based on a data matrix of 43 taxa and 155 osteological characters has produced a new hypothesis of tetrapod phylogeny that is drastically different from theExpand
Phylogenetics, Taxonomy, and Historical Biogeography of Alligatoroidea
TLDR
Parsimony analysis of 164 discrete morphological characters supports several previous hypotheses based on morphology and molecules that Alligatoroidea is a monophyletic alligatoroid lineage and the paraphyly of “Allognathosuchus” is indicated. Expand
Microsaurs as possible apodan ancestors
TLDR
Comparisons of the anatomy of the skull roof, palate and braincase of living apodans and the Paleozoic microsaur Goniorhynchus demonstrate greater similarities than between apodan and any other group of amphibians, fossil or recent, indicating that apodants may have an ancestry distinct from that of frogs and salamanders.
