Tell me about it. This morning I was going to reply to this and mention
that the last PhD thesis I marked, and the last paper I reviewed, both
did exactly that - but I thought "No, it's just a coincidence" and I
didn't bother writing.  However, this afternoon I am sitting here
reading yet another manuscript and I come across the same thing! So
"monophyletic clade" has popped up in the last three things I've read.
