Non-independence in statistical tests for discrete cross-species data.

Abstract:

The paper described three previously undetected effects, due to biases and non-independence, that can arise in statistical tests for associations between character states in cross-species data. One kind, which we call the family problem, is general to all known methods. In phytogenetic data, the ancestral character state from which changes occur, or below which variation is found, is likely to be the same for many regions of the tree. The family problem interacts with two kinds of non-indepen...
