Estimating phylogenies for species assemblages: A complete phylogeny for the past and present native birds of New Zealand

Lanfear, Robert; Bromham, Lindell


Phylogenies of species assemblages are vital to many studies of community ecology and macroecology. However, few assemblage phylogenies are currently available, and the approaches that have been used to construct them have had a number of important limitations. Here, we estimate a Bayesian posterior sample of phylogenies for all 275 known extinct and extant native birds of New Zealand. To do this, we use an approach that uses freely-available data and software, can incorporate both extinct and...[Show more]
