The European newts have been the subject of several phylogenetic analyses, using a variety of character sets, from biochemical to ethological. As a result, the European newts have probably been subjected to more diverse and intense phylogenetic analysis than any other vertebrate genus in the world. The various techniques used have yielded conflicting results, but recent analyses that combine different kinds of data promise a resolution of the problem.
