Molecular analysis of the Dendrogrammaceae.

The Dendrogrammaceae is a classic exercise that uses hypothetical plants to teach priciples of phylogenetic analyses. Although the original exercise has specific procedures for their originally intended use in teaching phylogenetics, the exercise is highly adaptable for students at all levels of experience. Modifications of the exercise and inclusion of additional molecular data analysis that can allow for additional facets of phylogenetic analysis to be included in the activity and help achieve additional learning goals will be described.
