Dear Ingo,

Have a look at:
- Chappill, J.A. 1989. Quantitative characters in phylogenetic
analysis. Cladistics 5: 217-234.
- Chu, P. 2002. A Morphological Test of the Monophyly of the Cardueline
Finches (Aves: Fringillidae, Carduelinae). Cladistics 18: 279-312.
- Thiele, K. 1993. The holy grail of the perfect character: the
cladistic treatment of morphometric data. Cladistics 9: 275-304.
- Wiens, J. 2001. Character analysis in morphological phylogenetics:
problems and solutions. Systematic Biology 50: 689-699.

MorphoCode for coding continuous data:

All the best,
