Apparently, dynamic discussion is not welcome by some in Bioforum.
Statistics are an indispensable tool that many biologists rely upon
toprevent making fools of themselves.  Given the diversity of
backgrounds in the bioforum at net.bio.net community, my Squares and
Sticks puzzle was appropriate because some of the expertise in
Bayesian (with hundreds of applications to the world of Life) might
not be immediately familiar with terms like autapomorphy, syanapomorphy,
(terms unique to a burgeoning field {i.e., systematics}).

Puzzles in the life sciences take many a form...
