<< So, as you can see, the colloquial (dictionary) meanings of "tetrapod" and
"reptile" differ markedly from the cladistic meanings. And it is proper to
refer to a bird as a "reptile" and a "tetrapod," whether you feel
comfortable with such labels or not. I take it that you did not intend for
us to apply the cladistic definitions to your words.
You and Tom Holtz are, of course, absolutely correct. I was using the terms
in the colloquial sense. Thanks for the corrections.
