"ref." from Mini-AIR: cheese clades & looming Paleo issue



"Evolutionary Relationships Among Cheeses," by Benjamin Waggoner. 
Cladistic analysis of modern cheeses shows a close affinity between
velveetids and cheddaroids, with mozzarelloids as a sister taxon to
both.  Careful application of these and other techniques makes it
possible, even with limited fossil data, to filll in basic patterns of
cheese evolution through time.  [Includes a table of cheeses and their
characteristics, and a two-dimensional cladogram of eight cheese
taxa.]
        --see: AIR, vol. 1, no. 3, May/June 1995, pp. 6-7.
