Case studies that lead students through phylogenetic evidence to investigate controversy / hot button topics:
- What is a flaggelate plant?
- Which bryophytes are the sister lineage to the remaining land plants?
- “Basal” and the non-ladder evolution
- Which characters are homologous?
- Evolution of the land plant life cycle
- Which phylogenetic optimization is better?
- Are gymnosperms monophyletic?
- What is Equisetum?
Somewhat canned – no new data analyses in case studies
