Matt and I have been meeting weekly for the past three weeks to have ODP work days–just to crank through analyses, etc. Mostly, it’s a matter of sitting down and forcing each other to do stuff. Matt’s posting soon, but … Continue reading
On Saturday, I’ll be giving a short presentation about (very) preliminary results from the ODP, for the 1st Annual Southwest Regional Joint DVM&DCB (Division of Vertebrate Morphology and Division of Comparative Biology) meeting of SICB (Society of Integrative and Comparative … Continue reading
Yes. . .I hope there is a finish line. As with many things started with the best of intentions, the ODP (and its heads – particularly me) has gotten waylaid. That said, it would be a shame to let the … Continue reading

I think we’re now converging on a cladogram that reasonably captures the current state-of-the-art. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. The topology has incorporated most of the suggestions, and I think the nomenclature is finally up-to-date. As … Continue reading
