    Phenetics has largely been superseded by cladistics for research into evolutionary relationships among species. However, certain phenetic methods, such as neighbor-joining, have found their way into phylogenetics, as a reasonable approximation of phylogeny when more advanced methods (such as Bayesian inference) are too computationally expensive. A cladistic analysis of Euprepina Hull, (Diptera, Bombyliidae, Bombyliinae), a Neotropical genus that includes ten species, was made. The cladogram was obtained from eight studied species, based on a data matrix with 21 characters, using the program Hennig Character states were polarized.

    A cladistic and biogeographic analysis is presented of Heterostylum Macquart (Diptera: Bombyliidae), a New World bee-fly genus with 14 species. Introduction. Like other bryophytes, liverworts are small, herbaceous plants of terrestrial ecosystems. They share, with the mosses and hornworts, a heteromorphic life cycle in which the sporophyte is comparatively shortlived and nutritionally dependent on the free-living gametophyte, but differ from both in numerous anatomical features as detailed by Crandall-Stotler ().Cited by:

    The American Museum is the first institution to present a major exhibition based on cladistics, the best current scientific method for reconstructing evolutionary relationships. Also called phylogenetic systematics, cladistics is a method of determining the evolutionary relationships of organisms--both living and extinct. Reconstructing trees: Cladistics. Cladistics is a method of hypothesizing relationships among organisms — in other words, a method of reconstructing evolutionary trees. The basis of a cladistic analysis is data on the characters, or traits, of the organisms in which we are interested. These characters could be anatomical and physiological.

A cladogram of the Bombyliidae and their relatives is constructed based on a data matrix containing 87 taxa and characters. This study includes 24 non-Bombyliidae taxa used as outgroups, from the families Rhagionidae, Nemestrinidae, Acroceridae, Asilidae, Therevidae, Apioceridae, Mydidae, Scenopinidae, Hilarimorphidae, and Apsilocephalidae.

Williams, Malte C. Ebach. The cladistics and classification of the Bombyliidae (Diptera: Asiloidea). Bulletin of the AMNH ; no. Author: David K. Yeates. Cladistics, or phylogenetic systematics, is a systematic and taxonomic discipline. Hennig (, ), founded the discipline although he was certainly not the first to use many of its principles.

It provides a method for reconstructing the phylogenetic relationships between species and higher taxa. Cladistics is a biological classification system based on analysis of traits, genetic makeup or physiology that were shared with a common ancestor until some type of divergence occurred, producing new species.

German taxonomist Willi Hennig jumpstarted cladistic classification in when he wrote his book on phylogenetic systematics. He uses the relatively new technique of cladistics, which analyzes the distribution and evolution of individual taxonomic characteristics among taxa, to reconstruct the phylogeny within the genera, subfamilies, tribes, species.

This structural diversity is reflected in the higher classification of the family, with a total of 31 subfamilies proposed to date. Up until recently the subfamilies of Bombyliidae were based on classifications formulated early this century, and those divisions did not accurately reflect the cladistic relationships within the family.

Cladistics is an example of natural classification To decide how close a common ancestor is, researchers look at how many primitive and derived traits the organisms share. By systematically comparing such characteristics, quantitative research shows which organisms have a more recent split in the evolutionary past and which have a more distant.

Phenetics versus Cladistics. Cladistics can be defined as the study of the pathways of evolution. In other words, cladists are interested in such questions as: how many branches there are among a group of organisms; which branch connects to which other branch; and what is the branching sequence.
