Abstract

A well-founded phylogenetic scheme enlightens biology by enabling the drawing of inferences about the evolution of the organisms concerned (Pagel and Harvey 1988). The best characters for evolutionary inference would themselves evolve in ways explicable by simple, and hence, powerful models, and these data would be numerous, enabling rigorous statistical tests of phylogenetic hypotheses. Naturally, these ideal characters would be universally present in living things, so that the same empirical and analytical methods could be universally applied.
