This chapter focuses on conceptual issues regarding phylogenetic approaches to evolutionary questions and then outlines the Anolis phylogeny, first discussing the uses and limitations of phylogenetic approaches, including problems with ancestor reconstruction and phylogeny estimation. It then presents the current understanding of anole phylogenetic relationships, which provides substantial insight into the evolution of the five anole faunas.

Keywords:   phylogenetic approaches, Anolis, phylogeny, ancestor reconstruction, phylogeny estimation, anole faunas
