Mass estimation of extinct taxa and phylogenetic hypothesis both influence analyses of character evolution in a large clade of birds (Telluraves)

Nicholas Crouch & Roberta Mason-Gamer
Incorporating extinct taxa in phylogenetic comparative methods is rapidly becoming invaluable in studies of character evolution. An increasing number of studies have evaluated the effects of extinct taxa, and different numbers of extinct taxa, on model selection and parameter estimation. Body mass is a well-studied phenotype, but individual mass estimates may vary dramatically depending on the particular measurement used. Here, we perform an analysis of body mass evolution in a large clade of principally arboreal...
