Espadas-Manrique C, Duran R, Argaez J (2003) Phytogeographic analysis of taxa endemic to the Yucatan Peninsula using geographic information systems, the domain heuristic method and parsimony
analysis of endemicity.
The agnostic model considers that both increases and decreases in genome size are equally likely, and was implemented here using squared-change (SP) and linear (WP) parsimony
methods of ancestral character reconstruction.
Griffin's rallying call for a return to mentalism clearly struck a chord with some ethologists, though the move in recent years has been towards a more constrained anthropomorphism that maintains the assumption of mental continuity between species while leaving space for parsimony
analyses indicated that the Decabrachia was divided into 3 parallel clades (88% MP in Fig.
nasutum reveal seventy-one parsimony
An exception is the provocative early chapter by Betty Glad, in which the author makes the case that in contrast to the constant demand for greater abstraction and parsimony
in social science theories, personality studies should be an important part of a rich intellectual "mosaic--a complex body of theories," in which "the kinds of proofs offered will vary with the nature of the inquiry undertaken" and where "one process does not fit all inquiry" (p.
Phylogenetic trees obtained using parsimony
and maximum likelihood (ML) methods su ggest that there have been three or four independent transitions from terrestrial to aquatic habitats within the homobasidiomycetes.
Phaidon have done Driller a great disservice in the design of this book and their parsimony
has worked to the detriment of what is a useful study.
Pouring over archives, they tend to choose an outstanding cause for parsimony
, rather than the complex tangle that often existed.
Distance and parsimony
analyses of the aligned DNA sequences were done with PAUP (Swofford, 1998).
The third relates to his account of the rule of law, in particular, his aggressive elaboration of Lon Fuller's well-known conception of the formal principles of legality to include a requirement of "compossibility" and the parsimony
analyses on the alignments were conducted with PHYLIP v3.57c (Felsenstein 1993) on phylogenetically informative characters only, with gaps being treated as a fifth character state.
