Phylogeny and Taxonomy: Reorganization of the Subfamily Carabinae Based on Molecular Phylogeny
The purpose of phylogenetic studies based on the principle of the molecular clock is primarily to trace the evolutionary history of the organisms under examination, rather than taxonomic classification. However, molecular phylogenetic data are quite often useful in taxonomic classification, although the findings produced by phylogenetic studies in many cases produce results at great variance from those of traditional taxonomic studies based on morphology alone.
