Re: Phylogenetic Nomenclature Again (Was: Buffalo pizza (was Re: Cladistics and stuff))

I was wondering the same thing, but it sounds like something hot off the presses. If it is a new article, the journal name would probably be Systematic Biology (which replaced Systematic Zoology).
I'm still waiting for Cantino's rebuttal to Benton's initial article which you cited.

If George is referring to _Stems, nodes, crown clades, and rank-free
lists: is Linnaeus dead?_, that article can be read online at
(and makes fascinating reading IMHO.)

If it's not the same article as the one George is talking about (which
is possible since it was published in November 2000 in _Biological
Reviews, vol. 75, pp. 633-648) then it is at least the same author's
perspectives on the same issues, so should cover much of the same
