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

Note that, unlike Figure 3, the X-axis is the average rate of change across all characters in the data set, as opposed to one single rate applied uniformly to all characters.
