However, we consider the concatenated Bayesian tree to be the most appropriate phytogeny to use for two reasons: (1) it considers a model of evolution that parsimony does not; and (2) the concatenated data set contains more characters (information) than genes analyzed individually.

By an organism's behavior, I mean, roughly, something an organism does such that its etiology involves selection processes in the phytogeny and/or ontogeny of the organism and, in part, also one or more factors of the immediate antecedent environment as sensorial (exteroceptive, proprioceptive or interoceptive) stimuli (a somewhat similar characterization is given by Moore 2008).
