Abstract

We respond to Steppan and Sullivan's (2000) critique of the systematic arguments and recommendations presented by Mares and Braun (1996). We argue that a “nonstatistical” approach still has a place in systematics as it is currently practiced. Although useful for hypothesis testing, Steppan and Sullivan's (2000) statistical approach should be used with caution when proposing changes in classification.
