Analytical methods in palaeobiogeography, and the role of early vertebrate studies

Young, Gavin


The complex data set resulting from early vertebrate diversification during the middle Palaeozoic has played a key role in developing analytical methods in palaeobiogeography. Rather than using fossils to test hypotheses based on Recent taxa, or geological/geophysical interpretations of palaeogeography, it is argued that the primary criterion for applying cladistic methods is whether data sets have hierarchical structure.
