Phylogeny

The topology below is based on an analysis of a data set size of over 90 genera of mayflies for 5 molecular markers (12S, 16S, 18S, 28S, and Histone 3). The final results of this analysis has been accepted and will be published soon in Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution. However, you are welcome to take a look at the phylogeny and any comments would be welcomed.

Topology 1 (Direct optimization via POY, Parsimony)

Topology 2 (Direct optimization via POY, Likelihood)

Character optimizations (Ancestral state character reconstructions for three morphological character systems)

In collaboration with Sartori et al, we are currently constructing a morphology matrix across all major lineages.
