Phylogenetic relationships of North American Gomphidae and their close relatives: Phylogenetic relationships of Gomphidae

I got notice of this today from www.Researchgate.net. You have to sign up, but then you can download PDFs of the papers.

I have been looking forward to this paper for the last 2 years and I'm going to spend the evening reading it.

There is a good debate going on at Discussion of Phylogenetic Methods in the Biological Evolution Forum.

It is starting to look like most groups of specialized biologists (at least, among entomologists) have some members who are also specialists in molecular biology. This project included 2 gene jocks and 3 morphological taxonomists.

Just among the Odonatists, there are multiple studies going on that are helping resolve many of the taxonomic and phylogenetic relationships that we have puzzled over for decades. We knew someday we would get to this point and I am so glad I have lived to see it.

These are exciting times.

One important characteristic of a theory is that is has survived repeated attempts to falsify it. Contrary to your understanding, all available evidence confirms it. --Subbie

If evolution is shown to be false, it will be at the hands of things that are true, not made up. --percy
