Two recent reports (B. Asfaw et al. , 23 Apr., p. [629][1]; M. A. McCollum, 9 Apr., p. [301][2]) ([1][3], [2][4]) are skeptical about the utility of cladistic analysis to resolve questions about early hominid phylogeny. Although we disagree with aspects of these studies ([3][5], [4][6]), it is true
