The vicariance area cladogram reveals the relative timing that barriers formed between areas: areas closer together on the tree were more recently separated from each other than from areas farther away (Rode & Lieberman 2005).
The analysis using all characters, equally weighted, resulted in 6 most parsimonious cladograms with length = 68 steps, Cl = 0.
The strict consensus area cladogram obtained with PAE showed a polytomy and four main groups or clades, two of them including only two or three grid-cells.
This clade is composed of five families in the cladogram of Bremer et al.
Index of consistency: a measure of the amount of homoplasy in a data matrix corresponding to a given cladogram.
The cladogram produced is your hypothesis about how these taxa are related to each other.
The weak statistical support of the structure at the breed level is a classic problem and shows how breed-level cladograms can be of concern for analyses of domestic species (Bruford, 2004).
By mapping details of comb-hair morphology on cladograms derived from other morphological and from molecular data we trace the evolution of comb-hairs in Pholcidae.
Anti-evolutionary arguments are based on a failure to understand that cladograms neither depict genealogical ancestor-descendant relationships nor recognize Linnean class boundaries.
Most parsimonious cladograms, consistency indices (CI) and retention indices (RI) were obtained using the algorithm mhennig*;bb* of the program Hennig86 (Farris 1988).
