Bayesian Analysis Using a Simple Likelihood Model Outperforms Parsimony for Estimation of Phylogeny from Discrete Morphological Data

Figure 2

A schematic representing different missing data distributions.

Columns represent characters. In the taxon-names column, an asterisk represents fossil taxa. Characters with the slowest rate of change are represented in light grey; intermediate-rate characters are represented in medium grey; characters with highest rate of change are represented in dark grey. In the top matrix, all characters are present for all taxa. The bottom matrices illustrate the missing data conditions that we simulated in this paper.
