Like all living creatures, we are on the surface of the tree of life. All extinct creatures are within the tree. But does our small part of the tree contain just ancestors, or does it also contain extinct close relatives? This talk addresses two related questions. How good are we at using fossil evidence to reconstruct the branching pattern of our part of the tree of life? How good are we at sorting ancestors from close relatives?
