In this case, Ashlock's methods are essentially non-parametric.

The most comprehensive description of Ashlock's approach is in Part B of
"Principles of Systematic Zoology, 2nd Edition" by Ernst Mayr and Peter
Ashlock.  As far as I know, this book is not in print in the USA - I had to
order it from Great Britain.
[The first edition is by Ernst Mayr alone, and does not have Ashlock's
method in it].
