I would like to draw attention to a recent paper I published that addresses some serious issues in how cladistics/phylogeny is done. It is worth mentioning that the paper reflects, at least in part, the opinions of numbers of colleagues who prefer to remain anonymous (mostly for grant winning reasons). 

I would be interested in responses and discussion!

The paper is open access.
