For the others, we all have, including Ken, our general users, the Dan
Janzen's of the World, could care less about phylogenetic
classifications of any sort. They want an handy, easy to use, general
index system for biological knowledge. So for most of them, the old
Linnaean system (with slight modifications by Latreille, etc.) is ideal,
with Order, Family, genus and species.
