cladogram

(klăd′ə-grăm′, klā′də-)
n.
A branching, treelike diagram in which the endpoints of the branches represent individual species of organisms. It is used to illustrate phylogenetic relationships and to show points at which various species are presumed to have diverged from common ancestral forms.

cladogram

a geneological DENDROGRAM based on the principles of CLADISTICS in which rates of evolutionary divergence are ignored.

An isomorphism of cladograms (resp., of ordered cladograms) is an isomorphism of trees (resp., of ordered trees) that preserves the leaves' labels.
In this regard and with regard to low variability in the CIs and RIs generated from cladograms 9-21, these results indicate the limited effect that the removal of any single Soil Order had on the BC.
From the data matrix (17 taxa x 27 characters) presented in Appendix 2, cladogram searches were carried out under the application of 2 different character weighting approaches: equal and successive weighting.
Each dataset analysis with MIX produced over 100 cladograms, and only one cladogram was selected (usually the first since the differences between the cladograms were in the upper minor branches) to represent each analysis (Figures 1 and 2).
RESULTS: The analysis under EW resulted in four most parsimonious cladograms, with 74 steps, a consistency index of 60, and a retention index of 78.
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).
The Implicit Enumeration algorithm (ie*) was employed in the search for the most parsimonious cladograms, with Nona & Winclada used to check the most parsimonious results found with this algorithm.
