For me, the main difference is that probability /
reliability of the results of a cladistic study
(phylogenetic trees, resulting classifications, etc.)
may be somehow measured / characterized. What
about reliability of the results of a non-cladistic
study? Are there any good methods to evaluate the
probability of phylogenetic constructions /
hypotheses made by non-cladists (not including
pheneticists) ?
