Phylogeny of Charadriiformes. Optimal maximum likelihood phylogenetic reconstruction of Charadriiformes and selected outgroups based on combined data of ADH5, GPD3-5, FGB7, 12S rDNA, 16S rDNA, and tRNA Valine using GTR + G. Both mixed model Bayesian analysis and maximum parsimony produce trees of identical topology. Bootstrap values obtained from 500 ML pseudoreplicates are indicated above branches or positioned by arrows. Asterisks indicate bootstrap values of 100%. Charadriiformes are indicated by bold font and subordinal epithets.
