Generic delimitation and phylogenetic uncertainty: an example from a group that has undergone an explosive radiation

Orthia, Lindy; Cook, Lynette; Crisp, Michael


Phylogenetic trees can provide a stable basis for a higher-level classification of organisms that reflects evolutionary relationships. However, some lineages have a complex evolutionary history that involves explosive radiation or hybridisation. Such histories have become increasingly apparent with the use of DNA sequence data for phylogeny estimation and explain, in part, past difficulties in producing stable morphology-based classifications for some groups. We illustrate this situation by...[Show more]
