systematics course

Tue Mar 29 14:21:25 CST 1994

Many thanks for the course outline and the reprint. My
teaching of systematics theory has been split between a few lectures
in my insect
systematics lectures (I joined the faculty in 1982, as a "raving
cladist", and so had to build some theory into an otherwise
identification-oriented course) and a colloquium  on insect
systematics for graduate students. I have been making noises about
starting a separate systematics course for some years - your outline
will be most useful,

I agree with much of your paper on quality control of biological
surveys, and could add some "horror" stories that reinforce some of
your points.
