Re: [dinosaur] Multiple optimality criteria support Ornithoscelida (free pdf)
Well, it really doesn't mean much that the same matrix, with all its known
problems (see Mickey Mortimer's blog posts, and hopefully soon a publication),
gives the same result when analyzed differently.
The discussion of analysis methods in the "Background and Summary", especially
of implied weighting (Goloboff et al., 2017 – ref. 14 of the new paper) strikes
me as superficial. All analysis methods work when their assumptions happen to
be fulfilled; this matrix is probably outside the range Goloboff et al. tested.
More on that general issue in another upcoming publication.
