With the advent of relatively objective classifications, such as the phenetic classifications produced by the operational techniques of numerical taxonomy (Sokal and Sneath, 1963), it was inevitable that biologists would wonder what phylogenetic conclusions could be drawn from them and with what reliability. If these phenetic taxonomies did not reflect all of the elements of phyletics (Sokal and Camin, 1965), could techniques be devised for deducing the latter? For example, could operational… 
The use of parsimony in testing phylogenetic hypotheses
TLDR
No satisfactory test exists in normal (synthetic) cladism for distinguishing synapomorphy from homoplasy, and it has been claimed that cladistic classifications yield the best results when judged by Mill's criteria, but this is only possibly the case with analytic classifications produced by numerical techniques.
Classification: More than Just Branching Patterns of Evolution
TLDR
It is argued that cladistics is inappropriate to both biological classification and nomenclature and to explain the origin of biological diversity even down to the populational level due to inability of branching patterns to reveal all significant dimensions of phylogeny.
Systematics as science: A response to Cronquist
TLDR
The authors' reply to the commentary on cladistics presented by Cronquist (1987) is aimed at four issues: the application of scientific principles in systematics, the recognition that the analysis of pattern is a vital precursor to any consideration of evolutionary process, the fact that many of the problems of phylogenetic analysis attributed to Cronquist to cladistics are common to all systematic methods, but that these can be dealt with by the application.
Phylogenetic inference in paleontology
TLDR
Construction procedures, ordering principles, and testing procedures for phylo- genetic hypotheses are considered and it is suggested that a viable phylogenetic hypothesis should explain at least a large segment of the available morphologic, stratigraphic and geographic data.
A Comparison of Branching Diagrams Derived by Various Phenetic and Cladistic Methods
TLDR
Data for 20 binary characters for 18 hypothetical evolutionary units, members of "Dendrogrammaceae," have been analyzed using various phenetic and cladistic methods and a series of recommendations is outlined.
Numerical Methods for Inferring Evolutionary Trees
TLDR
Although existing statistical models are highly oversimplified and do not reflect the complexity of evolutionary processes, it is by viewing the problem as a statistical one that all these methods can be placed in common fremework, within which their behavior and assumptions can be compared.
Cladistic Methodology: A Discussion of the Theoretical Basis for the Induction of Evolutionary History
TLDR
That the study of a group rarely permits incontrovertible statements about its evolutionary history is not sufficient to discourage motivation by the challenge of estimating history, especially as it serves to stimulate work in comparative morphology, biogeography, population genetics, comparative serology, paleontology, comparative molecular biology, and other related fields.
Cladistic Classification as Applied to Vertebrates
TLDR
Phylogenetic systematics appears to be a goal that many post-Darwinian taxonomists have striven for, while cladistics is a practical approach to that end, and it might be worthwhile restricting them to one as suggested above.
A Phylogenetic Analysis of the Caminalcules. III. Fossils and Classification
TLDR
Whether a hierarchy of taxonomic characters can be said to exist is examined, as well as the classifications that result when the Caminalcules are classified on the basis of phenograms or of cladograms, with or without the fossils.

Morphological Criteria of Phyletic Relationships
TLDR
This paper is an attempt to enunciate some of principles and to formulate criteria which may be of value in phyletic studies, and to determine the physiological factors shared by two organisms.
A Consistency Test for Phylogenies Based on Contemporaneous Species
It is commonly stated that phylogenies deduced from data about contemporaneous species cannot be "proved" because, obviously, evolution is a past event recoverable only from fossils. This is true to
