How could it not?  If you include a juvenile specimen as one of your OTUs, the
program can't say to itself "Oops, there's a baby in there!" and chuck it out. 
Instead, it will assume that the baby is the same sort of thing as all the other
OTUs and look for the best place for it in the tree--which may or may not be the
same place as for an adult of the same species.

I think I probably read that as "all branches" rather than "all trees." 
Mistake. What the heck is 'all trees anyway'? All possible trees? I'm confused.
