Dear Taxacomers,
Stace (Plant Taxonomy and Biosystematics, 2nd. ed., 1989, page 54) mentions "EUs are scored according to the number of differences in their respective character states; this table of so called 'Manhattan Distancees' is in effect dissimilarity matrix". 

I have a mail from Dr. Steve "Distance is a phenetic, not a phylogenetic, method". I invite your comments on this.
