  • A consensus is emerging that continuous (or metric) measures can be useful in phylogenetic systematics. Many of the methods for coding such characters, how- ever, employ elements that are arbitrary and therefore should be excluded from use in cladistic analysis. The continued use of such potentially inappropriate methods can be attributed to either their simplicity or the availability of computer programs specifically designed to produce data matrices using these methods. Conversely, one of the… CONTINUE READING
