Abstract

The bootstrap, a non-parametric statistical analysis, can be used to assess confidence limits on phylogenies. The method most widely used tests the monophyly of individual clades. This paper proposes additional applications of the bootstrap which provide useful information about phylogeny even when many clades are found not to be supported with confidence (as often occurs in practice). -from Author
