Gatesy et al. 2012
attempted to provide “A phylogenetic blueprint for a modern whale.”
Gatesy et al. did not realize that whales are diphyletic (or triphyletic). Gatesy et al. failed to include anagalid, elephant shrew and tenrec taxa basal to odontocetes and failed to include desmostylian taxa basal to mysticetes.
Not much else needs to be said.
Taxon exclusion, once again, is the fatal flaw.
