Chordate Phylogeny and Evolution Print

img4 cópia

- Cladistic analyses of the higher-level phylogeny of chordates and of the relationships of various subgroups (e.g., teleosts, ostariophysans, catfish) based on hard-tissue and soft-tissue characters


- Cladistic analyses of various groups (e.g., sturgeons, ostariophysans, teleosts) based on molecular characters

- Muscles vs bones, soft tissues vs hard tissues, and morphology vs molecules in phylogenetic reconstructions

- Homology, homoplasy, convergences, reversions, and anatomical complexity within the evolutionary history of chordates
