Higher level classification of parasitic platyhelminthes and fundamentals of cestode classification



Higher level classification of parasitic platyhelminthes and fundamentals of cestode classification



Parasites their world and ours Proceedings of the 5th International Congress of Parasitology, Toronto, Canada, 7-14 August, 1982, under the auspices of the World Federation of Parasitologists: 189-193



Six previously published phylogenetic trees were evaluated, based on a suite of 12 morphological characters exhibiting multiple traits and drawn from various ontogenetic stages. None of them fitted the data as well as a cladogram derived using the turbellarian group Dalyelloidea as out group. This cladogram was accepted as the best fitting hypothesis based on the data.
