Phylogeny of chalcidoid wasps

We used a phylogenomic approach to inferring chalcidoid wasp phylogenetic relationships and provided the first molecular clock-based estimation of deep Chalcidoidea divergence times. The phylogeny was then followed in tracing evolutionary roots of host switches, jumping ability, and associations with figs. Peters*, R. S., O. Niehuis, S. Gunkel, M. Bläser, C. Mayer, L. Podsiadlowski, A. Kozlov, A. Donath, K. Meusemann, S. van Noort, S. Liu, X. Zhou, B. Misof, J. Heraty, and L. Krogmann*. 2017. Transcriptome sequence-based phylogeny of chalcidoid wasps (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) reveals a history of rapid radiations, convergence, and evolutionary success.
