Data from: Morphological datasets fit a common mechanism much more poorly than DNA sequences and call into question the Mkv model

Pablo A. Goloboff, Michael Pittman, Diego Pol & Xing Xu
The Mkv evolutionary model, based on minor modifications to models of molecular evolution, is being increasingly used to infer phylogenies from discrete morphological data, often producing different results from parsimony. The critical difference between Mkv and parsimony is the assumption of a “common mechanism” in the Mkv model, with branch lengths determining that probability of change for all characters increases or decreases at the same tree branches by the same exponential factor. We evaluate whether...
