Dear Thomas,

We introduced "Information-base for systematics" in the paper:
"Bioinformatics tools for the study of microbial diversity"
Journal of Industrial Microbiology (1996)17, 490-497.

The information-base provides an interactive and graphical
browser for comparing results of numerical taxonomy and
phylogenetic analysis.

An example is given there:
- the inconsistency between a dendrogram and a phylogenetic
  tree are easily recognized
- the inconsistency is solved when multivariate analysis,
  instead of cluter analysis, is applied to phenotypic data.

Best wishes,
