Data from: Bayesian morphological clock methods resurrect placoderm monophyly and reveal rapid early evolution in jawed vertebrates

Benedict King, Tuo Qiao, Michael S. Y. Lee, Min Zhu & John A. Long
The phylogeny of early gnathostomes provides an important framework for understanding one of the most significant evolutionary events, the origin and diversification of jawed vertebrates. A series of recent cladistic analyses have suggested that the placoderms, an extinct group of armoured fish, form a paraphyletic group basal to all other jawed vertebrates. We revised and expanded this morphological data set, most notably by sampling autapomorphies in a similar way to parsimony-informative traits, thus ensuring this...
