Supertrees and the Tree of Life: generating a metaphylogeny for a diverse invertebrate family (Insecta: Diptera: Therevidae) using constraint trees and the parsimony ratchet to overcome low taxon overlap

Lambkin, Christine L.; Trueman, John; Yeates, David; Holston, Kevin C.; Webb, Donald W.; Hauser, Martin; Metz, Mark A.; Hill, Hilary N.; Skevington, Jeffrey H.; Yang, Longlong; Irwin, Michael E.; Wiegmann, Brian M.


The dipteran family Therevidae (stiletto flies) is cosmopolitan and has been the focus of many taxonomic and phylogenetic studies over the last 25 years. Despite this work, questions remain concerning the relationships between subfamilies, genera and generic groups and membership of those groups. We use the supertree method to produce an inclusive phylogeny for the family Therevidae from 24 phylogenetic studies using matrix representation with parsimony (MRP) analysis. The supertree method, one...[Show more]
