Bayesian, maximum parsimony and neighbour-joining analyses were performed to determine genetic distances between and phylogenetic relationships among the taxa.
3) used phylogenetics to determine the origins of the emergent strain.
In the current study, using molecular phylogenetics, we evaluated the biogeographical history of the genus Cibotium, which includes four Hawaiian endemic species, in light of the four weather/climate-based dispersal mechanisms.
His work has focused on development, morphology, systematics, phylogenetics, alpha taxonomy and nomenclature, biogeography, paleobotany, pollination biology, genomics, natural products, ontology, DNA barcoding, botanical history, and he has contributed to floras, regional checklists, and has been an author or coauthor on dozens of new species.

As I review the ABT looking for ideas, I am impressed by the scope of articles that address the need for more inquiry-based options for our teaching repertoires, including investigations on biofilms, seed germination, phylogenetics, and hydrogen bonding.
Nearly 100 scientific papers published by Toby alone or jointly describe over 600 species of Orthotylinae, Phylinae, Thaumastocoridae or Saldidae, examine heteropteran phylogenetics, identify synonymies and homonymies, or designate lectotypes or neotypes.
Phylogenetics, which traces the evolutionary relationships between species or groups of organisms, was particularly useful because it enabled the team to determine which members produce sophorolipids based on shared gene sequences for the trait.
