Re: Quo vadis AAAARG metaphor limits

While I agree with Nick that there are many examples of organisms coming 
together and sometimes branches even merging, I still believe that, despite 
its shortcomings, I think the tree model is appropriate for our purposes 
here, which consist mainly of discussions about dinosaurs--animals 
generally far enough removed from each other that interbreeding would not 
be possible, at least so far as we know.
